My First Chicken Salad Sandwich With Grapes

Whenever I have leftover rotisserie chicken, I also know that there will be chicken salad sandwiches made with leftovers. The first time I had a this recipe with grapes in it was at a popular lunch spot in Potsdam, NY. It was served to me on a golden crusty croissant roll and with the combination of sweet and savory it became my favorite sandwich.

I think of that sandwich often and since I moved away from that area, I miss not being able to go to that little classy lunch spot to enjoy it.

Seedless red grapes for a touch of sweetness.

Toasted almonds to add a buttery crunch to the salad.

Celery adds another touch of freshness to this recipe.

Scallions to add flavor.

Fresh dill because it compliments this recipe completely!

Mayonnaise for the dressing base.

Dijon Mustard to add a little sharpness to the flavor combination.

Lemon juice to give the salad a touch of acid that will balance out all the flavors.

Totally optional, but I love my Sur La Table spatulas. I own the cat and honeybee one, you can find many different styles here.

Tips and Substitutions

  • If you don’t have leftover chicken, buy pre-cooked chicken from the store. Or, do like I do and make a rotisserie chicken at home.
  • Substitute greek yogurt for the mayonnaise to lighten the salad up.
  • Use toasted pecans or walnuts in place of the almonds.
  • Use green grapes or purple grapes, but make sure they are seedless.
  • Substitute dried cranberries or cherries for the grapes.
