Fruit and Chicken Salad

Fruit and Chicken Salad is a light salad that is great for spring and summer. With grapes and apples, it a bit sweet and a whole lot of goodness.
This is one of those great throw it together salads. It’s great for gatherings. It’s great for lunches. It’s just great.
How long is Chicken Salad good?

It is good for 3-5 days. I like to make it on Sunday and have it for lunch all week.

When I first made this salad for my grandma (the one that made the potato salad), she told me that sounded terrible and she didn’t want any.  I made her try it and she loved it.  She was just an old dog who wanted nothing to do with new tricks.  I would recommend trying this new trick and so would she.

Looking for more great salads?
