Chicken Salad with Apples & Grapes

Chicken salad comes in so many different combinations.  It’s one of those recipes where you can add a little of this, or a little of that and it turns out great each time.  Today, I’m sharing my daughter Megan’s recipe – chicken salad with apples & grapes.  This will give you a base to start from.  From here, you can easily add or subtract ingredients while creating your own favorite combinations.  For that reason it’s really hard to proclaim any chicken salad recipe as being “the best”.  I’ve had it many different ways and loved many of them.  But, I will tell ya that this one is right up there with the best.

Chicken Salad with Apples & Grapes

My favorite thing about this chicken salad with apples & grapes recipe is that it’s not drowning in mayo and sour cream.  It has just enough to bind the ingredients.  Also, I will often buy a couple of already roasted chickens to speed things up because our life can be hurried like that.  I’m sure y’all don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, right?  Right!

You can serve this on crackers or bread, in pita pockets or wraps – whatever tickles your fancy.  Or, if you really must you can eat it off a bed of lettuce.

    1. Amber, Hooray! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I love your combination – very colorful! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. About how many servings does this recipe make if serving on croissants at a luncheon?

  3. I substituted the peppers for celery and added roasted pecan pieces. It was to die for. I’ve had it so many different ways by adding dried cranberries, raisins and slivered almonds. My mom used to makes this when I was a child so when I had my baby shower she made a huge bowl and I served it in pretty class bowls on a bed of lettuce. Everyone wanted the recipe. So good for parties or after school snacks for the kids ( they love it to). Anyways thanks for sharing this recipe. It was the closest I could find to the one I make.?

    1. Hi Jennifer!
