Chicken Salad

This is a recipe from my sister-in-law, Sandy Campbell.
This salad tastes great alone, on cream puffs or crescent rolls. When I have to make a large amount of this, I use a turkey breast and it tastes the same.
2 c. cooked, chopped chicken
2 c. chopped celery
2 c. halved grapes
1 small onion grated
Mix the following together for the dressing and add it to the chicken mixture.
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. mayonnaise
2 t. powdered ranch dressing mix

This picture doesn't show how absolutely amazingly delicious it is!!!! The grapes look a little like raisins in the picture.... YUCK!!!! No raisins, they are grapes. Juicy, firm, little grapes!!!!! I sure hope this is what you're bringing to the luncheon!!!!! Love you mom!!!

This does sound very very good indeed! Love the idea of using these in a cream puff. Will keep this in mind when I next go to a large gathering. I'm sure it will be a winner.

Peggy, I wasn't sure if you'd see my response regarding the tip size I used to make the swirl on the chocolate cupcake, so I came here, too. I hope that's okay. I used a Wilton 2D. It's a pretty large size, one of the largest I could find without getting into the HUUUGE sizes. It only takes three or four turns of the cupcake and it's frosted.

I see they use a different size tip, but I worked for the Wal-Mart bakery here and this is what we used. Maybe tip sizes have changed since I bought mine?

Wilton's technique is to go back and add the topknot, I was trained to make it all in one. When I get to the center, swirl as usual, BUT THEN continue pressure to let the frosting "build up" a wee bit, release pressure, and pull straight up. That will make the star pattern at the center of the cupcake.
