Chicken Salad with Grapes

On a hot summer day chicken salad can be refreshing with a cold glass of frosty iced tea or lemonaide!
Here is the Rock and Roll Cafe's recipe for Chicken salad just as we serve it here.

Ingredients: Mandarin Orange sections
Seedless Green Grapes or red /purple if you prefer
chopped celery
Almonds, pecans or walnuts chopped
bite sized chunks of fresh cooked white meat chicken

We use Gefen Mayo and love it here but, Hellmans or Goodfoods is great too!

Prepare the mayo this way: Sprinkle with a bit of sugar and add the juice of about half a lemon. taste the results and adjust as you see fit.

Some people like to use a creamy type cucumber salad dressing, Green Goddess , or a sweet creamy dressing of their choice. Its entirely up to you. But we doctor up the mayo with a bit of lemon juice and sugar. Go slow adding!! And taste as you go for perfect results. That's the secret of good cooking.

Mix the above ingredients with the mayonnaise or dressing and serve chilled on a plate of lovely lettuce or on a roll as a sandwich.

This looks very pretty served up in lettuce lined plates and garnished with a cherry on top.
