      This was great! I skipped the nectarine because I'm not that innovative, and I used pecans rather than almonds although I think almonds would be good, too. I have used canned chicken (packed in water) for this recipe, and it is still good -- a great chicken salad sandwich recipe. This made a lot -- more like six servings. Thanks for sharing!

      My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. He loves crunchy salads so the grapes and pecans were right up his alley. I was unable to find nectarines in our grocer, so I just skipped them, it was great without them.

      Great recipe. I am not big on the addition of nectarines but i tastes great without it.
