Chicken Salad Deluxe

Chicken Salad Deluxe created by LifeIsGood

Buttermilk dressing,macaroni,grapes,almonds and water chestnuts give chicken salad a new twist. Given to me by a dear friend, this is delish! This serves 20! Due to the chill times, prep and cook times do not include overnight chill. If you are unable to find Beau Monde(by Spice Islands) at your grocery store, it is available online. It's a great all around spice that I bought after tagging recipe #184001.

    This is a great take on chicken salad! I love the noodles (I had to use gluten free, which worked well), grapes, water chestnuts, almonds. All the ingredients work really well together. The dressing is wonderful. I didn't need to use all of the dressing. For the beau monde seasoning, I used a combination of onion powder, celery salt and sugar. Thank you! Made for Photo Tag.
