Allow me to explain… I like texture. Also, I like variety. So, when it comes to my family’s favorite recipe for a chicken salad sandwich, the bases are covered. Included are sweet grapes, crunchy celery, juicy shredded chicken, and even a few walnuts mixed in for flavor. This sandwich has it all. You can use regular bread; or if you’re feeling extra fancy, a deli loaf of Italian. Comparatively, per the hubby, the mix goes well with even crackers.
