  1. So disappointed!!! Essentially this is a crunchy grape salad with mayo & sour cream dressing...and some other stuff. It was bland boring - almost tasteless - with too much dressing.

  7. Excellent chicken salad! I made it substantially like the recipe really liked the additional flavor of the curry powder. But I did change a few things just based on what I had on hand: light mayo and sour cream a whole cup of pecans which I toasted and I used a whole 15-oz can of - Read more ...
  8. This recipe provided us with a great summer night's meal! It lends itself well to adding any ingredients you'd care to and it's a great way to use up leftover chicken from another meal. Thanks! We really enjoyed it!
