Flock of Geese Chicken Salad

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


12 servings

Named for a time-honored quilt pattern, this salad flies high with a combination of chicken, red grapes, crisp celery and crunchy cashews. Its pleasant, creamy dressing is delicious and simple to make. —Grace Yaskovic, Branchville, New Jersey


  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds), cooked and cubed
  • 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
  • 2 cups salted cashews halves
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon or white wine vinegar
  • Lettuce leaves, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients; set aside. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream and vinegar; mix well. Pour over chicken mixture; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve in a lettuce-lined bowl if desired.
