Chicken Salad with Grapes and Walnuts


  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded (such as rotisserie)
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion finely diced
  • 1/2 cup red grapes quartered or halved, depending on size
  • 1/2 cup celery diced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more if needed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper plus more if needed


  • In a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise (2/3 cup), salt (1/2 teaspoon), black pepper (1/2 teaspoon), and fresh chopped parsley (2 tablespoons).
  • Add the shredded chicken (2 cups), halved or quartered grapes (1/2 cup), diced celery (1/2 cup), chopped walnuts (1/4 cup), and diced red onion (1/4 cup). Stir well to combine.
  • Serve on sandwiches with toasted bread, on lettuce wraps, or on top of a green salad.


  • Walnut substitution: Not a fan of walnuts? You can use slivered or sliced almonds, or chopped pecans, instead. For a nut-free version, use sunflower seeds in place of the walnuts, so you still have that awesome crunch.
  • For a mayo-free version, try sour cream or Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
  • Mix it up! Fruits are great in chicken salad- try using dried apricots, chopped apples, or even strawberries in place of the grapes.
  • Storage: store in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 5 days.
