Now we’ll walk you through it so you can fall in love with this recipe as much as we did.

Step 1:

Step 3:

Mix with the mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.

Step 4: 

Fold the vanilla into the mixture with a spatula gently and continue to fold until the vanilla blends with the mix thoroughly.

Note: the mixture should be light and fluffy, so make sure not to overmix.

Step 6: 

When you’re ready to serve your Chicken Salad Chick’s Grape Salad, garnish it with brown sugar and crushed pecans. Enjoy!

Ingredient Substitution

Since it is a grape salad, you’re good as long as you keep the red and green grapes as the main ingredient of this salad. However, the recipe itself is very flexible. You can add other fruits to complement the grapes or use something different for the dressing. 

Use whatever you need to make the Chicken Salad Chick Grape Salad recipe suit your palate.

1. Mascarpone

Mascarpone is a high-fat variety of cream cheese made using cream rather than milk. However, it has a much richer velvety texture that will work well with this grapes salad. 

Except for texture, mascarpone also has a flavor similar to cream cheese. Still, adding a dash of salt or a spritz of fresh lemon juice can make it even more distinct.

2. Yogurt

Since yogurt is a universal product with many uses for breakfast, you probably already have it in your fridge to use instead of sour cream. Greek yogurt works the best since it is thick and tangy, just like sour cream.

If you have some regular yogurt, you’ll need to strain it through a fine-mesh sieve lined with a coffee filter to remove some of the liquid. 

What to Serve with Chicken Salad Chick Grape Salad

Chicken Salad Chick’s Grape Salad is a perfect appetizer or snack, as we’ve told before. If you’ve made a large batch, it would be quite filling

However, it just needs something on the side to complement the richness of the creamy dressing and fresh juice grapes. 

Consider these ideas.

Fried chicken

You can never go wrong with grilled or fried chicken since it is a perfect combination of savory, juicy and delicious. Besides, it goes with all possible sides you can think of, Grape Salad in particular. 

Serve it over rice or grilled veggies, and you’ll get some healthy carbs which make for an excellent side dish. And the creamy Grape Salad will provide a nice contrast to the crispy chicken.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes, serving something sweet with the fruit salad might be the best idea. This often comes in the form of cookies. Can anyone resist chocolate chip cookies? Not only are they delicious, but they are straightforward to make.

At the same time, they leave you filling full and happy. And the creaminess of the Chicken Salad Chick Grape Salad will feel nice on the side of the crunchy cookies.

BBQ Pork Chops and Peaches

BBQ pork shops and peaches are sweet, savory, full of protein, and super easy to make. And while it might now seem like the grape salad has any place here, it does complement the dish. 

Just bake your pork chops, set the oven to 350°F, and bake it for about an hour. Serve to steam hot with some mashed potatoes for a complete meal.

How to Store Chicken Salad Chick Grape Salad 

Unfortunately, fruit salads are not suitable for storing or cooking beforehand since fruits tend to become sour and soggy. And in the case of the cream dressing, the shelf life shrinks to a few days

Still, if you wanted your Grape Salad to live the other day, so you don’t have to throw away the leftovers, learn how to store it properly

Store Chicken Salad Chick Grape Salad in the Fridge

To store the grape salad in the fridge, keep it in an airtight container with a tightly sealed lid. The Chicken Salad Chick’s Grape Salad will hold like this for about 3-5- days. 

But mind the dressing; if the salad becomes watery, it’s best to whip up a new batch.

Store Chicken Salad Chick Grape Salad in the Freezer

Freezing is the least recommended method of storing fruit salads, let alone cream-based fruit salads. It won’t be the same when thawed: the consistency and texture will be lost, especially considering that grapes don’t freeze too well. 

So going for the fridge is the best option for this grape salad.
