Today was the shower I was helping host for my sister and I went a bit overboard on the baking and cooking. I did two flavors of cupcake and frosting, and three types of finger sandwich (and I was only bringing ¼ of the food!). I was making the two type of chicken salad; my curried chicken salad and a classic southern chicken salad. When I think classic chicken salad, I always think grapes. I know that not everyone likes fruit in their chicken salad, but I do.
The hubs was equally found of both flavors (as was my brother-in-law, he sampled everything prior to the shower) and requested I bring home any chicken salad leftover from the shower. I think he’ll be eating chicken salad for the rest of the week!

2 stalks celery, chopped
2 Tbs sweet relish
2/3 c mayo
