My mom used to make this exact chicken salad when I was in college. She would come for a visit and make a big batch for me and my roommates to knosh on. I loved it then and am so happy to find the recipe. She has misplaced hers. I also used half green and half red grapes for color. Looked beautiful and tastes as good as I remember. Thanks.

What a wonderful refreshing salad. I've made it with miracle whip for my personal preference but also with mayo for guests. Also mixed green & red seedless grapes. It is so pretty! I added 1/4 cup coconut flakes for fun once and that was good too. Also good with cashew pieces.
