  • 1 cup (240g) real mayonnaise
  • 1 (8oz)(226g) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon season salt
  • 3 cups (450g) cooked and cubed chicken
  • 3 cups (360g) chopped celery
  • 3 cups (480g) red or green halved seedless grapes
  • 1 (8oz)(227g) can water chestnut, drained and chopped
  • ¾ cup (75g) chopped green onion
  1. In a large bowl combine the mayonnaise, cream cheese, and season salt. Add in the remaining ingredients and gently combine.

  2. Serve immediately as a salad or sandwich--or make in advance (which I think it tastes even better the next day!)
Recipe Notes
