Some make it with grapes, while others make it celery.

  1. I love grapes in chicken salad.Also add some organic walnuts or pecans and dried cranberries. Great summer meal with your favorite rolls and maybe a slice of melon when in season. Even better the next day.
    Enjoy exploring and planting your new gardens. Such a beautiful home.

    1. So true it is so good as a summer meal! The grapes really make the dish in my opinion! Thank you very much Kathy!

  2. Stacy,
    I have a rotisserie chicken salad recipe similar to this but mine is more involved! I can’t wait to try yours.

  3. love chicken salad…. I add golden raisins,chopped pecans, celery plus celery seed. And my go to bread is always croissants too! Perfect combination

  4. Thanks for sharing, I love chicken salad! I actually use canned chicken from Sam’s Club, drained and cooked a little with some seasonings in a saucepan then let cool (I know it’s already cooked, but I think it tastes better this way). I use mayo, a little sour cream, chopped pecans, and I like both celery and grapes! (All about the crunch!). Apples are good also. Been meaning to make some now that the weather has warmed up. Definitely need to try it with croissants! It’s great because you can change it up depending on what ingredients you have on hand, as long as you have chicken and mayo😀.

    1. Oh that sounds really good! I love that it is such a forgiving recipe where you can easily change it up. THank you!

  5. 5 stars
    Yum! So good! I love adding both grapes AND celery to mine! Because I’m indecisive like that… lol

  6. I make a version of this too, and I love this! I don’t usually serve it on bread, although now I want a croissant!
