I used three chicken breasts that I broiled instead of canned chicken. I also decided on the black grapes (they looked red but were labeled as black) because of their flavor. I opted to use about 1/3 cup of mayo instead of the cucumber dressing simply because I had it on hand. Served on croissants, it was exactly what I anticipated, a light and fruity chicken salad. Yum. Thanks for a simple and delicious recipe. It's now one of my favorites and will be keeper.



Nice twist on chicken salad, however if I were going to go so far as to call it "gourmet" I wouldn't used canned chicken... I opted to use some leftover citrus grilled chicken I had on hand. I also used some red grapes for a little color. I didn't have cucumber salad dressing so I used Hellman's light mayo cut with a bit of sour cream and added a bit of salt, pepper and just a bit of curry powder. Overall, very good on toasted whole grain bread.



I used red grapes instead of green, used Miracle Whip for the dressing, and chose walnuts over almonds. This recipes was awesome. The flavors go great together. Definitely a keeper!
