Charlie's Famous Chicken Salad With Grapes

"A really great guy I used to work with would make this and bring in to share. We all loved it so much and would beg for more! Sounds strange with the grapes, but it's so good! Allow time for salad to chill."

    I did like this salad, but I think next time I make it I will use real mayo. I am not a big fan of Miracle Whip but did use it since the recipe called for it. The Worcestershire was a nice touch. I have been making chicken salad for a long time with grapes and nuts and love to change varieties of nuts. I used walnuts this time and roasted them before adding. All and all a very good recipe. Will make again but with mayo. Thanks Sherri35

    This is amazing! I've made it multiple times and always get rave reviews. It is totally my go-to lunch for friends. I make it as the recipe calls and put it on a croissant. YUM!

    Definitely 5 stars all the way! I used 1/2 mayo and 1/2 Miracle Whip, added the pecans. Really good stuff! Next time I might try adding some sliced mango, but it surely doesn't need it.

    This is a great recipe!! I put in dried cranberries and since I like a little spicy, added red pepper flakes to taste. This is definitely a keeper!!

    Hi Sherri. Awesome recipe! I've tried it with many different fruits... apples, raisins, Craisins and red seedless grapes. All are wonderful. I do, however, cut the celery down to 1/4 c (just because I don't care for it) and only use about 1/3 c of diced onion (because I like to leave it sit overnight, and then the onion really takes over). I also add just a pinch of mustard (because that's how I've been making it for 40 years. I too love "Miracle Whip"!!! Thanks so much for dressing up a classic go-to sandwich (croisants rock!). P.S. I skip the nuts altogether... they don't work welll with false teeth! LOL. :-)

    A good alternative to grapes and Worcestershire sauce is pineapple tidbits and curry powder. PS: REAL men use real mayo -- not low energy substitutes like Miracle Whip !

    A dash of creamy horsey sause gives this an incredible kick!

    I loved this recipe. My tweak was I added cilantro & cut Mayo by 1/2 & replaced it with Greek yogurt.

    Omitted the Worcestershire sauce

    I used vegan mayo, and reduced the walnuts and salt by half! I didn't add celery. I also added a handful of dried cranberry.
