This is the best chicken salad I have ever had. I didn't use miracle whip, instead I used real mayonnaise, and only a little more than what the recipe called for, just to give it the right consistency. I also didn't add any nuts to it. Seriously a fantastic recipe!!! This one is going to be a regular in our house.

This was my first time ever making chicken salad, but I knew I wanted it to taste like my mother-n-law's and this recipe looked like it would. I'm not a fan of Miracle Whip so I used real mayo and used half white and half red seedless grapes and added Craisons. It was wonderful, and the whole family loved it. Next time I think I'll mix the mayo and Miracle Whip half and half to see if I can get it just a smidge more tangy. Thanks so much for the recipe Sherri :o)

Wow. All I can say is wow. Absolutely the best chicken salad I have ever had. So many chicken/shrimp salad recipes are dominated by the ick factor, that slippery slimy sensation of a mouthful of mayo. But this salad, though it calls for Miracle Whip (or mayo) is counterbalanced by the perfect amount of crunch because of the crisp/sweet red grapes, nuts, and celery. A true keeper.

This is a real winner! Everyone at our event raved about it! It was great alone, or as a sandwich filling. It will definitely be a go to for future gatherings. I served it along with rolls and romaine lettuce, (for wraps) NOTE: I did substitute mayo for miracle whip. This allows for a gluten free salad (using Hellman's, Wegman's or Berman's)

Delicious! I omitted nuts (allergies) used regular mayo and added fresh tomatoes. Wrapped in flour tortillas makes an easy fresh summer dish.
