I just made and ate this delicious salad. I did not chill it in the fridge, as all the ingredients were already chilled, plus I subbed chopped, cooked turkey for the chicken. I also cut the recipe down to make a serving for 1 or 2 people, and may I say.... this sure was quite delish. I did however, omit the pecans, nor did I serve this on a lettuce leaf. To make a serving for 1 to 2 people, this is the amount of ingredients I used.... 1 cup chopped cooked turkey, 1/3 cup cut-up seedless green grapes, 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery, 1/3 of a large McIntosh apple, chopped, 1/3 cup of Kraft Mayonnaise, 1/2 tablespoon of French's Honey Mustard, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/16 teaspoon of black pepper. This salad is a great way to use up the leftover cooked turkey after Thanksgiving. Thanx for the recipe!

This is a wonderful chicken salad! I used walnuts instead of pecans, and shredded carrot because I was out of celery. I also added some chopped Maui onion, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. I didn't think it needed any salt, just a little fresh ground pepper. Delicious!

I just made this for the first time and absolutely love it. I've made chicken salad with grapes and pecans but never thought of adding the honey mustard. What a great combination. This will be the recipe I go to from now on. Thanks for sharing.

Very good! I used chicken from a whole roasted chicken that was already well seasoned, and I wish I had not added all the salt and pepper listed here- too much! But still a great flavor! I omitted the apple and didn't miss it..

This is a great recipe! I didn't have honey mustard so I substituted 1/2 regular, table mustard and 1/2 honey.

This was so good!! The first time I saw chicken salad with grapes in it, I thought EWWW GROSS. But I tried it anyway and it was delicious. I love this recipe because you've got the creaminess of the mayo yet the crunchiness of the pecans and celery. The grapes provide a perfect amount of sweetness. It's lovely with a nice buttery croissant.
