  • I substituted FF plain yogurt for the sour cream and added additional 1Tab of Miracle Whip for a little added taste. I think next time I'll through some pineapple tibbets in too. - 8/10/09

  • I made this today and it is really good. The only complaint I got from the grandkids is that it was a little dry. I only had a few grapes (not quite enough), so that was 1 reason. We loved it and will try again. - 11/12/08

    If it turns out a little dry, just use a bit extra sour cream. The light version won't really add that many cals per serving.

  • This is a wonderful light tasting chicken salad. It's great on sandwiches or with a green salad. My whole family--even my picky eater--loves it as long as I leave out the celery seed. I'm the only one who likes celery, so I add fresh celery to my own portion. - 11/10/08
