Pita Pocket Chicken Salad

We wanted something cool for lunch one summer day, so I tossed together whatever I had in the refrigerator. This wonderful salad was the result. Guests enjoy the sweet grapes, tender chicken and crunchy almonds...and the always ask for the recipe.

    Very good!!! We love this recipe. Some eat it with the lettuce and some donot, but they all like it so far. We have used green grapes as well and it turned out just as good.

    This recipe is scrumptious! I make it all the time. It is very good with black grapes too! If you can't have poppy seed dressing for medical reasons, like diverticulitis, use 1c mayo, 2tbls vinegar and 1/4c sugar. It tastes great either way!

    What a delicious recipe! I was hesitant with the poppy seed dressing and no mayonnaise, but it was great! Thanks for sharing!

    Made this for my friend for lunch one day. We loved it! We always try to make new things for each other but this one has repeated itself many times.
