Tired of the same old salad? How about incorporating some tasty chicken and grapes for a sweet & savory chicken salad and turning it into a whole meal?
For this recipe I used an herb seasoned organic rotisserie chicken and removed the chicken, skinless and off the bone. You may either shred the chicken or finely dice, either way it will work. I thought I would be a bit creative by adding in some green grapes and creating a sweet and savory meal.
Whenever it is so hot out like it has been and will continue to be, I just do not feel like turning the oven or store on. So I purchased this whole, organic rotisserie chicken already baked from the grocery. Shhh, no one has to know. This also helped to save some time. Once I combined all of the ingredients I allowed them to get really cold in the fridge, about 1 hour. And by serving this salad cold (as it should be) it also helped the flavors to come together very nicely.
Now, you may serve this just on a bed of lettuce for that added light meal, in a hollowed whole tomato or on your choice of bread or bun.
Enjoy this with a chilled glass of semi-dry white or fruity white wine and you’ll feel like you are in paradise! Enjoy!
Gourmet Chicken Salad Sandwich

- 3/4 cup celery, finely chopped ( about 1 1/2 stalks)
- 1 cup whole grapes, diced
- juice of 1/2 small lemon
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon dry tarragon, finely chopped
Place all of the above ingredients into a medium bowl and gently fold to incorporate all of the ingredients evenly. Place in the refrigerator for at least 60 minutes before serving.
Place a generous amount onto your choice of either bread, buns or inside a hollowed whole tomato or on a bed of lettuce.
