Crunchy, Sweet and Tangy Chicken Salad

Sweet, Tangy and Crunchy Chicken Salad Recipe from

Oh man you guys. This is one of my very favorite summertime recipes. Like the title says, it’s a crunchy, sweet and tangy chicken salad.

The best part? It’s so stinking easy to make. Like- for real.

For this recipe we used some leftover grilled chicken, but you can buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it up if you don’t want to grill. It does taste best cold though, so at least have cold chicken to get it moving.

What you need for this recipe:

2-4 cups of cooked chicken (cubed or shredded)
1 cup purple grapes (halved)
1/2-1 cup chopped celery
1/2-1 cup pecans (or other hearty nut you have on hand)
1-2 hearty scoops of mayonnaise using your tablespoon (I don’t really like mine over dressed so I always start with less and add more if needed)
salt and pepper to taste

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix it up! That’s it! You can totally use more or less of the ingredients depending on your taste. I love to serve this on romaine or spinach leaves. It’s also awesome on sandwiches. Grab a croissant and prepare to die. Seriously, SO GOOD.

Let me know if you make it! I’d love to know what you think!

    Great on a hot summer day! Light but filling. I do enjoy this receipt, it’s quick and easy and that is what I need.

  2. […] During the summer I hate cooking hot meals in the kitchen so we eat a lot of chicken salad. Eating the same one all of the time can get old, so we have a few different ones that we roll through. If you are looking for another chicken salad recipe, you can find one here. […]
