I was going to title this Melody’s Chicken Salad and in my mind that is exactly what it is. My daughter adores chicken or turkey ( a Thanksgiving leftover staple) salad with grapes. I like it with the grapes … I also like to kick in a few Granny Smith Apples from time to time also. It’s a forgiving dish, most anything will fold right in and taste really darn good! I am not a fan of the nuts, but if it’s you’re thing, then hey, go…umm nuts? That was really corny, even for me.
That hubbyman, well he’s a pickle and onion chicken salad kinda fella. He’s not too keen on the idea of fruit in his chicken salad, and that is OoooK… I always have to make two batches and that’s ok too… I have mentioned that I love to cook, right?
Give this a whirl, let me know what-cha think… its perfect for these Summer get-togethers that are popping up!
- 3 boiled chicken breasts cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
- 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
- 1 cup red grapes halved
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon Goya®Perfect Seasoning ( or any flavorful mixed seasoning)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- celery leaves chopped
Add cubed chicken to a large bowl with the celery, onions, grapes, mayonnaise and sour cream and gently fold together. Add the Celery leaves, seasoning , salt and pepper and fold once more. ( you can really just toss it all in and fold well, its not a big deal, just saying)
Cover and chill at least two hours.
Fold well before serving. Perfect with crackers, toast or white bread!!
