My husband loves chicken salad. I mean looooovvveeeessss chicken salad. From the poppy seed chicken salad that makes a regular appearance to a grilled chicken salad, he loves it all. And since I llllooooovvvveeee him, I make it for him as much as possible.

This chickens salad recipe makes a delicious, quick meal. Made with chicken, grapes, and roasted nuts, it is always a favorite!

But one of his favorite versions involves fruit and tons of chicken. I’m always playing around with different versions of a chicken salad with fruit for him and realized that you might like this recipe, too.

Full of tender chicken, fresh sliced red grapes, celery, roasted pecans, and dried cherries, I’m not sure what wouldn’t be right with this recipe.

If the fact that there was none left over was any indication, my sweet husband didn’t think there was anything wrong with it either.

This makes a great salad for lunch, a light supper, and takes hardly any time to mix all together.

    I’ve always put either dried cherries, golden raisins or fresh grapes in my chicken salad. I also add slivered almonds (toasted) along with finely diced celery for crunch. As for seasonings, besides salt, pepper and garlic powder, I put in a pinch or two of curry powder. The curry makes it “pop” and it is super yummy, we serve it on croissants or in a halved cantaloupe. One of my favorite meals.

    I Love trying new recipes if it has things in it that we like. Sometimes I will alter what’s in it and create my own recipes. Looking forward to trying some of your recipes. P.S. I collect Cookbooks and will pass them down to my daughter and daughter in law some day. Both of the girls are really close and Love to share thing’s between them.

    I add curry, black olives and rotini noodles to stretch it and the dressing I use is Marzettis Slaw Dressing. I’ve found roasting a whole chicken makes the best chicken salad

    if you want the best tasting chicken for this & the easiest~~use a rotisserie chicken from the store. this is basically the recipe I have made for yrs., have used some dry Lipton onion soup for a flavor of onion without using onion

    I like to use an old recipe of my Aunt Lillian’s for the dressing. It consists of 1 cup real mayo,1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup cider vinegar. It is just mildly sweet….it works well on Waldorf Salad, coleslaw, and chicken salad. Aunt Lillian is gone now, but her recipe lives on!
