Chicken Salad With Grapes and Blue Cheese

Chicken Salad With Grapes and Blue Cheese

This is another great hot weather meal. You can grill the chicken outside or skip the cooking all together and use rotisserie chicken from the store. The salad has a lot of flavor and is a nice blend of sweet and tangy. It’s also very light, which is perfect for a hot night
