My favorite chicken salad

Ever since getting the perfect chicken salad at the Fresh Market, I've been looking online for a similar recipe. I found this at www.cooks.com. While I can't say they match up exactly, this recipe is by far the best I've made myself! We used crushed almonds instead of pecans because that is what I happened to have in the pantry and it was yummy :)


4 c. cubed, cooked chicken
1 1/2 c. green seedless grapes
1 c. pecan pieces
1/2 c. mayonnaise or creamy salad dressing
1/4 c. sour cream
2 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. poppy seeds
White or black pepper, to taste
Lettuce leaves

Directions: Combine chicken, grapes and pecans in large bowl; set aside. Stir mayonnaise, sour cream, honey, poppy seeds and pepper in small bowl to blend well; add to chicken mixture. Toss well to coat. If desired serve salad on lettuce leaves.
