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.
I really enjoyed this salad. Adding the nectarine took it to a wonderful new level. I did use rosemary instead of thyme as it is growing outside my back door and I didn't have thyme handy. It was nice in it but I would like to try it with the thyme. I was a bit confused about dividing the lemon juice so I threw it all in. Also, the directions don't say what to do with the almonds (include in the mix or garnish?). I mixed it in and loved the crunchiness. I know I will make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.
This is such a delicious version of the usual chicken salad. It was full of fresh flavor from the fruit, and the celery and green onions kept it from being too sweet. We loved it. I had made it for a light dinner to be served with croissants, but after my husband tasted it, he ate a big bowl for lunch when I wasn't looking. He usually doesn't do that, so I know he really liked it. I will definitely make it again. It is perfect as written -- no changes need to be made. As you said, it's perfect for those summer evenings (or for any time). Thanks for posting this permanent addition to my "Favorite Recipes" cookbook.
