We love chicken salad with grapes, but some don’t. That’s ok! We’ve had a lot of readers send us in their own versions of this recipe. Here are a few ideas to switch up your chicken salad and make it your own!
  • Lemon juice/zest
  • Peppered mayonnaise
  • Turkey, ham, or tuna instead of chicken
  • Chopped hard boiled eggs
  • Jalapeños in place of celery for an extra kick
  • Sliced olives
  • Mandarin oranges
  • Crumbled bacon
  • Sprouts
