    Chicken Salad--Best You Will Have Ever Eaten!!!!

    CHICKEN SALAD
    2 1/2 Cups cooked chicken, diced--(can use well drained canned chicken) Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to cooked chicken.
    1 Cup seedless grapes-quartered (I like green & purple for the added color)
    1/2 Cup almonds, slivered or chopped
    1 Cup salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
    1/2 Cup whipping cream (I use the whole 1/2 pint container)--when whipping I add one teaspoon powdered sugar & 1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 Tablespoons parsley Flakes--finely crushed
    1 Apple--cored & chopped
    1/2 Cup sweet relish
    1/2 Cup onion--diced (optional)
    1/2 Cup celery--diced (optional)
    Salt & Pepper to taste (I don't use any)

    Mix all ingredients together adding the whipped cream last. Put in refrigerator and chill. (you can eat this as soon as made, but, I prefer it cold) Serve on bread or I prefer on Ritz Crackers.

    This makes a large amount so you can share with a friend or neighbor, as I usually do. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. This is one of my favorite summer time foods.

    *** Sounds good (will try it) for everything but the MIRACLE WHIP ( hate the taste ).

    *** In the SOUTH we have DUKE'S mayonnaise that has its own unique flavor (made in Greenville, SC).

    I love chicken salad, and reall like grapes and nuts in it. And since I am a Midwest gal I will definitely use the Miracle Whip! Thanks so much for sharing, I will try this very soon. Besides a sandwich, I like to eat it on the top of a nice lettuce salad or in the middle of a home grown tomato..... oh man, I am getting pretty hungry!!
