I love chicken salad… when it’s made by someone else. Well, until now. Why I never thought to add nuts and fruit into my chicken salad, I’ll never know, but I’m glad I finally did. You could honestly mix in any type of chopped nuts and grapes. I think next time I will try pistachios and black grapes. Or walnuts. Oooooh, or maybe even some craisins!! OK, I’m going to go make another batch, ya’ll enjoy!
