I've always loved chicken salad. I'm used to the traditional kind -- chicken, celery, mayo -- but I thought I could come up with a healthy and more exciting version for Kenya. Something about the addition of grapes seemed like a delicious idea to me since Kenya loves them on their own, so why not in this recipe?!
My friend Diane came over today and said that she normally doesn't like chicken salad because the pieces of chicken are too big. I couldn't agree more. You want to be able to take a bite and enjoy all of the tastes, not just chicken. By throwing everything in the food processor, it combines the ingredients so every bite has a little of everything and a lot more flavor, in my opinion.
This is a great "on the go" dish for little ones because it has a fruit, protein, carb and vegetable. Just be sure it doesn't sit out too long because of the mayo (or Veganaise).
