"Using a little imagination, I came up with this recipe for drop-in dinner guests one night," writes Diana Boschulte of Goodfield, Illinois. "It's so versatile. You can leave out the grapes and add chopped apples or vegetables instead."


  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup seedless red grapes
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • Leaf lettuce
  • Tomato slices, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, celery, grapes and raisins. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Add to chicken mixture; toss to coat. Stir in pecans. Serve on lettuce. Garnish with tomato if desired.
