My principal made this for a luncheon and it was fantastic! I begged her for the recipe- it is so easy and delicious! Great for showers! For the chicken, can use chicken breasts, but I use canned chicken breast meat from Costco.

This was easy & delicious. I subbed dried apricots for the green grapes and loved them with the combo of flavors. The almonds & celery added a nice crunch to this creamy salad. I served this on a bed of lettuce with tomato wedges & homemade rolls. Very nice lunch! Thank you for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall 08 Pick A Chef.
