Chicken salad with grapes and almonds

Some consider chicken salad a standard lunch-time fare, but this recipe will jazz things so you’ll be hooked all day, every day! 

Chicken salad usually consists of diced chicken, mayonnaise, and diced celery or onion. Not bad, but we can do better.

This recipe is loaded with flavor! You’ll taste the sweet and crunchy red grapes, nutty and salty sliced almonds, and bright and earthy herb blend. 

It’s easy to throw together and eat all week long. Put some on a sandwich, top some on a salad, or just eat with a side of fruit for a quick breakfast.
