MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2012

This is a good recipe. I added more chicken and just a little more salad dressing and used 7 eggs and 4 yolks. I had leftovers and on the next day the chicken salad tasted much better. For the next time, I am going to use red grapes and raisins. And will not add the green grapes and pineapples. Stay tune for the results.

We made it for a graduation open house. Went really well! Tasted terrific - chunky, creamy and altogether delicious!

Trying using red grapes-a little more flavor, plus it adds color. We didn't use the eggs.
