chicken salad with grapes and pecans:Growing up, chicken salad wasn’t really on my radar. We did a lot of tuna salad, along with this classic egg salad recipe after Easter — but never chicken salad.
It wasn’t until my then future husband and I started frequenting a quaint little restaurant near my dad’s Lake Erie cottage that I fell in love with it. This restaurant was well known for two things: the most amazing fresh cut French fries (seriously SO good!) and the very BEST chicken salad.

Anyhow, my chicken salad with grapes and pecans recipe is very similar to theirs. Packed with lots of sweet and juicy red grapes, a bit of celery for extra crunch, and plenty of roasted pecans, it has all of the summery flavors that I crave. All while staying toward the healthy end of the spectrum thanks to this little light chicken salad hack…
