I make this salad all the time! I love it! Make sure you use light or fat free mayo, regular gives it less flavor and a more greasy feel to it. I add a tad more sugar and use cider vinegar. Another great variation is to add mandarin oranges and cranberries.


WONDERFUL! Great on croissants. My husband didn't think he would like the grapes (kind of a meat and potatotes guy) but he really liked it; moreso with the grapes than without. I didn't add the almonds this time only because I didn't have any. This was heavy on the rice so if you prefer more chicken you may want to consider modifying the recipe accordingly.


I rated this recipe a five but i changed it all around so maybe it's not. Anyway i guessetamated the mayo/sugar/vinegar/salt and pepper, using far less than instructed. I used cashews instead of almonds, very few grapes and used a can of chicken instead of turkey. Regardless i consider this an A+ recipe
