    This is such a wonderful recipe I had to share this, too.
    Great summer (or anytime) recipe.

    CHICKEN SALAD
    2 1/2 cups chicken-cooked and diced( I add 2 Tbls. lemon juice)
    1 cup seedless grapes quartered ( I like green and red both-colorful)
    1/2 cup celery, diced
    1/2 cup sliced or slivered almonds
    1 cup salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
    1/2 cup whipping cream-whipped(I add 1 tsp of powdered sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla to cream as I am whipping)
    2 Tbls. parsley flakes
    Salt & Pepper to taste (I don't use any)
    1 Apple-unpeeled & chopped
    1/2 cup sweet relish
    1/2 cup chopped onion(optional)

    Mix all together well then fold in whipping cream. Put on bread, crackers, pita pocket, etc. Wonderful. Worth the extra time. I like it better cold.

    Great recipe.

    I like to put dried cherries in my tuna and chicken salad.

    Sounds interesting; I'd never thought to put sweetened whipped cream in chicken salad, though I often but dried cherries, or cranberries in mine. Where did you get the recipe?

    To save recipes you can Bookmark them. You will see it st the top "left" of the forum page. Blue letters. Click on that. Put what you want to title it and click. Then, when you want to look at Your bookmarked pages go to the very top of this page, look for MY Bookmarks, click on that and there it is. Hope this helps. Happy Quilting and Cooking. This recipe really is worth the little extra time.

    Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe! We are going to a potluck tonight and once I read this recipe this a.m., I changed my plans - scrapped the dessert and made this instead. Of course, I had to sample and it is DELICIOUS!!!!!

    To save recipes from this site, I usually copy and paste them into Word and then I have it saved on my computer and don't have to connect to the internet to get it again.

    Does sound delicious! Have you ever made it with mayo instead of the miracle whip? I tend to use mayo the most and wonder if it would change the flavor too much.
