Used to serve this at the restaurant and to Baylor College of medicine by special request. Serves 6-8. You can add more of a certain ingredient if you prefer. Wonderful on a hot summer day. I came up with this recipe years ago when looking for a light but tasty summer dish. Salt gives it a bitter taste. ENJOY!!

4 large
boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 c
seedless grapes( cut in halve
2 can(s)
pineapple tidbits( drained and squeeze by hand to extract liquid
3 small
cored/unpeeled Red Delicious apples) diced
1-11/2 c
mayonaisse(NOT SALAD DRESSING!)
chopped walnuts or pecans.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil chicken with an onion and celery until cooked completely through. Remove chicken and set aside or refrigerate to cool.Dice chicken and add to large bowl.
2
Add diced apples, well drained pineapple and grapes to bowl.Mix well.
3
Add mayonnaise to moisten.Cover and refrigerate for 4 or more hours. Before serving stir and add more mayo if appears dry.

I like to serve in individual scooped out cantaloupe or pineapple halves with a few sugared strawberries as decoration. If desired sprinkle with nuts just before serving so they remain crisp and not soggy.
