A creamy, low fat dressing, scrumptious spices, tender chicken, and sweet grapes make up the sum of this quick, easy-to-make chicken and grape salad.
I remember the first time I enjoyed a chicken and grape salad. I actually helped make it for the reception of my best friend’s wedding. It was just so yummy! But, because I didn’t make it on my own soon afterwards I mostly forgot about it.
Until I spotted it again in our local grocery store. Yummy chicken and grape salad! This version had toasted almond tossed in it too, which made it even yummier.
So I started regularly making it at home for a quick and easy lunch. Our grocery store sells already shredded chicken and turkey which is super convenient.
Then I started Trim Healthy Mama. And my chicken and grape salad love was set aside for a while since it contained lots of mayonnaise (a fat) and lots of grapes (a carb). That is, until I got around THM-ing it.
Below is the resulting THM-ed version of that traditional, very yummy, and filling chicken and grape salad recipe. It is now once again a go-to for quick, easy, and delicious lunches. I usually whip up the whole recipe and just eat it up by itself!
What Readers Say
So one NEGATIVE thing readers have said concerning this recipe is that it is a copy of a similar recipe found in the Trim Healthy Table cookbook. While it’s true that it’s similar, it was in existence BEFORE Trim Healthy Table was (since 2015 to be exact; my recipe was published on my website Measuring Flower first, then here as of June 27, 2017; Trim Healthy Table wasn’t out until September 12, 2017).
But, here are a couple POSITIVE things people say about my chicken and grape salad:
Another reader made the salad for one of her husband’s coworkers who has diabetes. Here’s what that coworker had to say about it (you can see the original picture of the note HERE):
