I modified the original recipe for this chicken salad to make it healthier. The ingredients are so flavorful that my changes didn't take away from the taste. This refreshing salad never lasts long at our house. Even if I double the recipe, my husband asks, "Why didn't you make more?"

Over the years, Andrea Donofrio has experimented with many versions of chicken salad. “But this delicious recipe is my favorite,” says the Walpole, Massachusetts cook. “Chunky apples, juicy grapes and toasted walnuts add just the right amount of texture and great flavor to these tasty bites.”
I like this combination of egg salad and tuna salad, rolled together in flour tortillas. Whether I eat them right away or in a day or two, they retain their flavor.—Francine Wingate, New Smyrna Beach, Florida
I ordered an entrée similar to this at the local museum café and liked it so much I decided to make something similar. At the museum it was served as a filling for a sandwich made with lettuce, tomato and thinly sliced red onion. I tend to serve it as a salad during the summer. It’s really good on a hot day.
For a unique way to serve chicken salad, these puffs can't be beat! The tasty filling gets color and crunch from the olives and celery. Guests have told me they are delicious and satisfying.

“You can make this lovely and interesting sandwich as a great, light lunch. It's so tasty and colorful,” suggests Linda Evancoe-Coble of Leola, Pennsylvania. “Or pair it with a hearty soup for a change-of-pace supper.”
If packing this fantastic sandwich for a brown-bag lunch, keep the bread separate from the salad so it doesn’t get soggy. You can also try serving the tuna salad with crackers, as a wrap or on lettuce. Nae Bartolomeo - Indianola, IA
Janelle Aguda of Chicago, Illinois gets her son involved in this sea-cruising cuisine by having him assemble the simple sails out of cheese slices. They like to serve the “boats” on blue paper plates with fish-shaped crackers.
Your family will be happy to take the "wrap" when it's loaded with luscious turkey salad dressed with alight mix of yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic and curry. "This is excellent for lunch boxes, and the tortilla is a fun replacement for bread," says Janet Knickerbocker of Palmyra, Missouri. To add a bit of color, choose red or green tortillas.
