Creamy sherried chicken salad, bursting with fresh grapes, toasted crunchy almonds, fresh green onions in a flavorful sherry dressing. Why is it that I feel as if Chicken Salad is reserved for Spring and Summer? For some reason, this is the time of year that I start to crave this creamy, chunky, crunchy and satisfying salad! But it’s delicious anytime of year!
SHERRIED CHICKEN SALAD
I collected this recipe from a friend that I met while we lived for a short time back in the Washington DC area. She’s a marvelous cook and I have numerous recipes from her during our time back there, those recipes hold a special meaning to me. She was a friendly face during a tumultuous time in our lives and I am so grateful for her!
This recipe for Sherried Chicken Salad is perfect to make on the weekend, then you can nosh on it all week long. Change it up each day; place a scoop or two on a bed of great lettuce, garnish with some celery sticks, a little bunch of grapes, or eat with crackers, on a croissant, some whole wheat bread, or in a pita or a yummy roll!
Or make it for a luncheon with a variety of breads and crackers allowing people to make their own.
In a large mixing bowl, add your chopped or shredded chicken. Chop your green onions, halve your grapes, toss in your toasted* slivered, almonds, chop celery, if desired.
How to Toast Almonds
Next, make your dressing in a small bowl, add your sour cream, mayo, seasoning salt, sherry (I used a Port) and pepper. Whisk until combined.
Pour over the chicken salad mixture.
Stir gently to combine. Refrigerate an hour before serving for best flavors. Best if enjoyed with a week.
