This is my all-time favorite chicken salad recipe, and it’s actually an improved version. Delicious Chicken Salad made with elbow macaroni, grapes and toasted almonds for that crunch we all love so much.
As I mentioned above, this is my absolute favorite chicken salad recipe. I’ve been making it for nearly fifteen years now. I first tried this recipe back when my family owned a restaurant and it was often our lunch special. That was my first experience with having sweet fruit in savory dishes and it blew my mind. I have one thing to say, if you haven’t tried it…do it now! Pop of sweetness in a savory dish is an amazing food experience.
Now, I already have this recipe on the blog but it is older than dirt. I made it years ago and the photos, as well as the recipe, needed an improvement. Over the years, I’ve improved this recipe and it’s about time I share my improved version of this salad.
I got some beautiful little seedless grapes from WalMart this week so it was a perfect time to remake my salad. As always, I was very happy with the way it turned out. I can eat this salad for days. First, you can serve it on the bed of lettuce or spinach with some fresh veggies or you can make this delicious chicken salad wrap.
This wrap is so easy to make. All you need is one large flour tortilla, two slices of Havarti cheese and a handful of fresh spinach. So tasty and all the flavors jump out as you enjoy each and every bite.
WalMart’s is always proud to carry fresh, farmer picked produce with a 100% money back guarantee. Right now they have some wonderful looking (and tasting) grapes. For some buying tips, storage ideas and health benefits you can visit their website right here.
