Chicken Salad With Bacon and Grapes

User Rating 5 Star Rating (3 Reviews)

By

This tasty chicken salad has lots of flavor from the bacon and grapes, and the water chestnuts give it interesting texture and pleasant crunchiness. This is an uncomplicated salad, perfect for a special luncheon, or serve it as a supper salad on a hot summer evening.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cooked diced chicken
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 can (8oz) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 2 ribs celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, fresh or dried
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced green onions
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Combine first chicken, bacon, water chestnuts, celery, and grapes in a large bowl; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients; combine with chicken mixture, using as much or as little as necessary to moisten as desired. You may add a little more mayonnaise if you like a creamier salad. Chill and stir again before serving.
For a luncheon dish, serve over slices of ripe avocado and lettuce leaves.
Serves 4 to 6.

Whole family LOVED it!!!, Member Deesellner

This was the best chix salad I've ever made. The whole family loved it! I left out the water chestnuts, lemon juice and ginger and added a sprinkle of garlic. One big awesome tasting bit was putting the salad on a croissant. We will be making this again and again. Thank you so much.
