Mindy's Chicken Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Deja A

I brought along this sweet-and-savory Chicken Salad on a camping trip and my brother-in-law whined that he hated chicken salad. Needless to say, he gobbled up the sandwiches without complaint! It makes for a beautiful luncheon or shower dish, particularly served with petite rolls or over lettuce leaves and topped with ripe avocado. By the way....Mindy's my hairdresser; her husband loves to make this salad.

Very good chicken salad! I really enjoyed the blend of flavors. I used a grilled chicken breast, and sized down to 1 serving, however doubled the quantity of grapes. I think next time I will add a little black pepper, and a chopped pecans. Otherwise terrific recipe! Thank you for sharing Deja A! Made for 2009 Spring PAC
