Dope or Nope ...


I may have used this one before, but who cares ... most people like chicken salad, right? You know - the traditional chicken salad with chunks of chicken, onions, and other stuff mixed with mayo. It's good on rolls, rye bread, or even by itself.

Well, some people just can't leave good enough alone ... some of these "healthy" stores add grapes and other fruit to chicken salad. To me, that is a total 100% nope - I can't stand fruit with my chicken salad - it just doesn't seem .... umm .... natural.

So, what are your thoughts on this? Do you like chicken salad with fruit in it? Or is this a big nope?

I like grapes in mine...when it is done right. I don't buy it anymore, I make my own and EVERYTHING I make is good. ;)

If I'm just having Chicken Salad... then no.

BUT.... if I'm making pesto chicken and it's fancy for crackers and all that jazz, then I add craisins and pistachios and pine nuts

If I make it myself with fruit, I like it. I don't tend to like any kinda of salad that I don't make myself.

If "natural" is the criterion, what part of the chicken does the mayo come from?

I say nope. Fruit should be a side, not in the chicken salad.

And I miss the honey stung chicken salad from the old vendor downstairs, that stuff rocked.
