Nothing says fancy like this gourmet chicken salad, which is my stand-by recipe for special occasions. I love serving this for brunches and lunches when the ladies are gathering to spend time together.
The sweetness of the grapes compliments the Swiss cheese perfectly, and the lightness of the yogurt makes it a healthy alternative to using a full measurement of mayonnaise. This chicken salad is a huge hit for bridal or baby showers.
