Pineapple Chicken Salad is the perfect simple meal. A flavorful chicken salad with grapes, pineapple and nuts comes together quickly and can be made with leftover Oven Baked Chicken Breasts or rotisserie chicken!
Serve this as an easy weeknight meal with a tossed salad or make it ahead of time to enjoy for lunch throughout the week.

Easy Summer Meal
If you are like me, I savour every moment of my summer! As much as I love to cook, when the temperature rises the last thing I want to do is slave over a hot stove! Meal preparation completed ahead of time is blissful and this easy chicken salad recipe definitely fits the bill!
Not only is this simple and easy, but it is so impressive to serve for guests while sitting on the deck sipping on an ice cold glass of NESTEA® slightly sweet black iced tea!
What Goes In Chicken Salad
Fruit adds a bit of sweetness and a juicy tang to this recipe. Like in a Waldorf Salad, fruit lightens up a mayonnaise based dressing.
Pecans add a bit of crunch (along with celery). They can be replaced with walnuts or almonds if you prefer.
A mayonnaise based dressing is flavored with a hint of curry powder. The addition of curry is amazing in chicken salad with grapes!
