This is sort of obvious to some of us, but some people may not know...heavy whipping cream is not interchangeable with Cool Whip. Cool Whip is sweetened and non-dairy and heavy whipping cream is in a carton sold next to the half and half and is unsweetened. You would be better off substituting softened butter as that's what heavy whipping cream is after a heavy whipping, lol. Or possibly a creme fraiche or sour cream. Not trying to be snotty, just trying to help.

This is a wonderful base recipe for many variations of chicken salad and pretty darn good on it's own too! Definitely 5 stars as written and for it's potential! HELPFUL HINTS: Heavy whipping cream is NOT cool whip which changes the complexity of the salad. ADDITIONS: For a different salad built on the recipe base, try adding cranraisins, chives, pecans, candied cashews (found at Trader Joes) and/or cayenne pepper. Also, curry is a nice spice to add to give the salad different character. A crowd pleaser to be sure!

Let me start by saying that I am a chicken salad traditionalist (in other words, I typically do not like `foreign' ingredients in my basic salads, things like grapes, raisins, and so on). So, I was very reluctant to try this recipe despite all the good reviews. But, I took a chance and made it for a friend's baby shower. Even while I was mixing it I was cringing and afraid...old opinions die hard...grapes and mayo...yuck! Anyway, I have no regrets. Wonderful recipe that I got many compliments on. The grapes were awesome with the other ingredients; they fit right in and were delicious. It's a lot of work to make fresh chicken salad, but when I make it again, this is the recipe I'll use. So if you are a traditionalist, like me, go ahead and try something different. I bet you will be pleasantly surprised and expand your food horizons! One more thing, I used pecans instead of almonds...really I think any nut you have on hand would work as well.
