Triple Grape Chicken Salad


This is no ordinary chicken salad. I used not one, not two, but three types of grapes to sweeten up this dish.

Triple Grape Chicken Salad

I found a grocery store near me that carried the two types of grapes that we all think of, red and green. But they also had these huge, round, red globe grapes from Chile.


I don't think I had ever had chicken salad with green grapes in it before but I really liked it. The bit of tartness worked wonderfully with the tangy miracle whip. Usually, I use Greek yogurt for the creaminess factor in my chicken salad, but hey, I worked out today, so don't judge me. :)

Triple Grape Chicken Salad
1 rotisserie chicken, skin and bones removed, chopped {about 3 1/2 C}
3/4 C miracle whip
3/4 C chopped pecans
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 stock celery, chopped
2 C grapes, 3 varieties {I used green, red and red globe from Chile}*

In a large bowl, mix chicken with miracle whip. Add the lemon juice, pecans and celery and stir to combine. Cut grapes in half or fourths and gently fold into chicken salad. Serve cold.


Eat this up with crackers, wrapped up in lettuce cups or just by itself. 


This was also my first time using a rotisserie chicken in my chicken salad. Uh, yum! Not sure why I haven't tried that before. I got a plain chicken, marked "savory," pulled the chicken off the bone, removed the skin and chopped it up. This is such a great time saver if you don't want to cook your own chicken! 


*If you buy grapes with seeds in them, make sure to slice them in half and remove the seeds before adding them to the chicken salad.
