I am not a big fan of chicken salad, but I loved this. We made some small changes: red grapes, Miracle Whip instead of mayo, doubled the portion of grapes, and sliced the cheese super small so there wouldn't be giant chunks. For an extra treat, have on croissants!

Just okay. I used sharp cheddar and left out the grapes. I did add just a tbsp. of white wine dijon and onion/garlic powder. I spread this on potato bread. NOTE: This is best eaten right after you make it. It's really unappealing the next day.

This was good, but Hubby said he likes our regular chicken salad better.

Absolutely delicious! That comes from someone who doesn't (or didn't) like chicken salads!

This is great (I can't wait for lunch to have my chicken salad on a croissant with fresh lettuce and tomato). I added about 1 tbsp. mustard and a few diced scallions. I also used fresh parm instead of cheddar and only added about 1/4 of a cup, and I substituted pecans for the sunflowers. Thank you Brenda!

This is pretty good, but I think next time I will change a couple of things, such as less mayo and I will chill it before eating it.

This was fantastic. A great cool sandwich for the summer. The sunflower seeds and grapes complimented each other. I used shredded cheese in this instead of cubes so we didn't get just a bite of cheese. I also left out the celery.

Wow this is super good and easy. I love trying out different chicken salads for the summer and this is going on the list. The flavors are so unique and unexpected. I love the crunchy sunflower seeds and the sweet grapes. I served mine in a wheat pita. Thanks for sharing!!!
