This recipe comes from my sister-in-law who got it from an old roommate’s dad or something like that. I have tweaked it a bit over the years, as is usual for most recipes I use. It uses sour cream as well as mayonnaise to lighten it up a bit. The other secret ingredient is fresh lime juice. It adds some brightness to the salad.
Please feel free to add or omit ingredients. And a lot of the measurements are approximations. I do not measure when I make this. I just add as I go.
4 Chicken breasts cooked and cut into small cubes
3-5 Cups seedless red grapes cut in half
3-4 Green onions, chopped
1/2-1 Cup sliced almonds
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
1/2 Cup sour cream
Juice of 1 or 2 limes
1/2-1 tsp. dried thyme
Sprinkle of seasoned salt
S&P to taste
Combine chicken, grapes, green onion and almonds in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream, lime juice, thyme, seasoned salt and S&P.
Pour dressing over the chicken mixture and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning and lime juice as desired.
Serve with your choice of bread, rolls or crackers.
