Need a good Chicken Salad with Grapes recipe!

I've never liked chicken salad before but I had a really awesome chicken salad that my step mom got from Krogers when we were visiting family a couple of weeks ago. Now I'm craving it BIG TIME and we don't have a Kroger's here so I'm looking for a GOOD chicken salad recipe that includes purple grapes!

  • I have a pasta recipe. Make a box of spiral pasta until al dente. Cool off. Cut grapes in half. Add to noodles, with mayo and canned chicken (you can use leftover cooked chicken too), salt and pepper. Mix together. Add slivered almonds.

  • I can give you general guidelines, but I don't measure anything. Shred roasted chicken. You'll get better flavor if you mix light and dark meat together - usually we season them very simply, just salt and pepper, so we can use the leftovers for more than one thing, but sometimes we'll do a theme like Mexican spices or Italian, and those can make good salad later, too.

    Add 3 parts mayo for one part mustard (brown or yellow - your taste). My mom always used Miracle Whip instead of mayo, that's another thing that's just what you prefer. Start with 1 1/2 tablespoons of mayo to 1/2 tablespoon of mustard, and then slowly add from there until it's the consistency you want - you can always add more, but if you start out with too much, you can't really take it out again.

    Add some finely chopped celery, walnuts, and some small seedless red grapes. Same as the mayo/mustard - start with a little and just gradually add.
