{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Chicken Salad with Grapes


From Susan’s most recent recipe swap column.

Now you long time readers just KNOW I’m leaving out the celery.  This year, hubby and I have been on a seedless black grape rampage.  They are so sweet and juicy.  Can’t get enough of them.  I just bring them home, pull them off the stems, wash and keep in a bowl in the fridge.  They disappear almost overnight.

Chicken Salad with Grapes

This chicken salad recipe makes a delicious, quick meal. Made with chicken, grapes, and roasted nuts, it is always a favorite. I oven roast my chicken on the bone and with the skin to get that rich flavor. I also do not like the texture of boiled chicken, so in my book, oven roasting is the way to go for my chicken salad.

1 pound cooked chicken, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup red grapes, halved

1/2 cup dried cherries

1/2 cup roasted pecans, chopped

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Celery leaves, chopped (optional)


Add chopped chicken to a large bowl along with celery, grapes, dried cherries, chopped pecans, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. If using chopped celery leaves, add these as well. Stir together until just combined. Yields 4 to 6 servings.






God Bless and have a GREAT DAY!
