I used three chicken breasts that I broiled instead of canned chicken. I also decided on the black grapes (they looked red but were labeled as black) because of their flavor. I opted to use about 1/3 cup of mayo instead of the cucumber dressing simply because I had it on hand. Served on croissants it was exactly what I anticipated a light and fruity chicken salad. Yum. Thanks for a simple and delicious recipe. It's now one of my favorites and will be keeper. Read More

This was a really great recipe although the chicken from the can was a little salty. Next time I am going to use fresh chicken. Read More

Nice twist on chicken salad however if I were going to go so far as to call it "gourmet" I wouldn't used canned chicken... I opted to use some leftover citrus grilled chicken I had on hand. I also used some red grapes for a little color. I didn't have cucumber salad dressing so I used Hellman's light mayo cut with a bit of sour cream and added a bit of salt pepper and just a bit of curry powder. Overall very good on toasted whole grain bread. Read More

The best chicken salad I've ever had. Made my own cucumber dressing with half a finely chopped cucumber a cup of plain yogurt a garlic clove a teaspoon of lemon juice a pinch of salt and about a half a teaspoon of pepper. Blended it all together and it was phenomenal! Read More

I increased the recipe to nine servings from six. I left out the oranges and I used a total of two cups of grapes. I also used red grapes and not green. I only had about a half cup of celery and I threw in a cup of almonds. I actually thought that there were too many almonds so I'll decrease them next time. There was also a salty taste and I don't know if that came from the nuts or from using canned chicken. I've never used it before. I was trying to duplicate a recipe that I lost several years ago and this was close. My kids and husband loved it. I was disappointed but maybe just because I was expecting my "old" recipe. We'll try it again though! Read More

I liked this recipe but made a few changes that worked really well. I added cucumbers and crasins. Instead of plain almond I used ranch flavored salad topper alamonds and mayo instead of the cucumber dressing. Very tasty! Read More

This is good & easy. Used regular cucumber ranch (the lite was too salty)because I couldn't find just cucumber dressing. You should definitely toast the almonds -they are much better that way. Also red grapes are good in it that's what I had.-Susie Read More

I loved this recipe but my picky 10 year old son did not. My 3 year old liked it pretty well though. I will save this for parties at work or lunch with girlfriends and serve hot dogs to the kids.;-) Read More
