Gorgonzola Chicken Salad with Grapes and Walnuts

This Gorgonzola Chicken Salad with Grapes and Walnuts is an update from an old favorite; the combination of chicken salad and grapes is the best!

Gorgonzola Chicken Salad Sandwich with Grapes and Walnuts

I can’t shop at Costco without purchasing one of their roasted chickens. I seldom buy one for a full meal either. The reason I cannot walk on by is because I just LOVE homemade chicken salad and they make pulling one together this Gorgonzola Chicken Salad with Grapes and Walnuts so easy.

I have to give Sprouts some credit for the idea. They are the only place I shop that has deli foods I will buy. Something about the way they prepare their food that appeals to me. No fillers, no relish, not overdone with eggs or other condiments.

What I buy there tastes much like what I would make at home and trust me, every single time I pickup a small carton of prepared food the phrase, ‘I could make this at home so much cheaper.’ always is on my mind. And I can. So I do.

To be honest I don’t know for sure if I bought a chicken salad with Gorgonzola cheese from them or if this came about because I love their Potato Salad with Gorgonzola Cheese and this was my riff on that but I do know it’s now my favorite.

I love, love, love Gorgonzola cheese; I call it Blue Cheese Lite. It’s got plenty of flavor but still is milder than a straight blue cheese so it’s the one that always ends up in my basket. Not a fan of Gorgonzola? I love this recipe from Marshall Field’s too; some similar components without the blue cheesy bite!

I love using croissants when serving this for a crowd so check those out at Costco too. None in the house? Simply toast some sandwich bread and improvise! This would be a fantastic dish to serve to a crowd and with the Super Bowl coming up; one that is a change from some of the heavier fare we are too often stuck with at big game day parties.

My team isn’t going to be anywhere near a Super Bowl this year; still, I enjoy the game day revelry and it’s a time for friends to come over and I’ll serve these and a some specialty beer. Who needs football really; I just love to gather my friends!?

  1. This is a standing sandie in my world….though we use the green grapes and eliminate the black olives. No one likes to see black in their sandie. Besides, we love a variation of olives
    on the side to munch on. May i say this; i also use a combination of mayo with a little dijon in the
    mix this is where i begin the introduction of sweetner. Red onions have that ultimate flavor and give a colorful look.

  2. That sandwich is gorgeous. I always try to put grapes and walnuts in my chicken salad. The sweetness of the grape and the crunch of the walnuts make it very special.
