I didn't have sour cream so I used vanilla yogurt, didn't have grapes so I used kiwi, didn't have celery so I used 1/4 t celery seed, didn't have lemon so I used lemon juice. I cooked some bread...

Also great tossed with some penne with the cantaloup on the side!

One of the most refreshing things I have tasted in a long time! This is going to be a regular in our house, hands down! Especially during the summer! SO good! Thanks for the recipe!

Made this delicious recipe for lunch with some friends. They loved it.

This chicken salad is perfect for a light summer supper! yum

Amazing chicken salad!

Made this for a summer lunch...delicious! I used canned chicken and would also like to try canned tuna. I substituted chopped smoked almonds for regular almonds.

I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream, canned chicken, and omitted almonds because it wasn't going to be served right away and I knew the almonds would have gotten soggy. Tasty and refreshin...
