Whenever I make this amazing chicken salad recipe (and let me assure you, it absolutely is amazing), I have to make a double batch because it is our babysitters favorite treat.  And heaven knows I love feeding people, so it makes me happy to do this.  The chicken salad never lasts long, because the two of us sneak into the fridge all day to steal little bites.  Mmmmmm.

how to make chicken salad

The first time I had chicken salad with grapes was at a new friends house several years ago, and I'll admit now that I turned my nose up to the stuff.  Silly, silly me.  I finally relented and tried some after way too much coaxing and have been a wholehearted convert ever since.

This Fresh and Fruity Chicken Salad begs to be eaten on a creaky porch swing with some chilled sparkling cider and a crisp leafy green salad while enjoying the warm Spring breeze. Or, you know, over the kitchen sink with your children screaming circles around you. Either way it's delicious.

  1. You should try Brianne's Poppy Seed Dressing on the chicken salad instead of mayo! :) YUM!!!

  2. i like the grapes/almonds, but i think i'd throw in some apples/celery to the mix, as well, just because. and what do you think about tarragon as a spice in this salad? i'm tempted ....
