A delightfully different chicken salad made with grapes, mandarin oranges and toasted almonds. Prep and cook time does not include the cooking of the chicken.

I got raves from my co-workers when I brought this in for our St Patty's day potlock. What is different about it is that it is not gummy or goopy or overly sweet as some chicken salads can be. I did change a few things: In keeping with our green theme, I used green onions versus the regular onions called for- I used about 6 of them. I also used double the mayo-2/3 cup because I had about 4 cups of chicken. As you suggested, I let the chicken cubes, onion, salt, celery and lemon juice sit overnight in the fridge, but before I did, I mixed in about a TBS of dry ranch dressing, to which I am addicted.Thanks Marie, I'll be making this one again!
