These are great sandwiches for picnics or for a cool summer brunch. You can make these with tuna or chicken if you want. I ate lunch at a restaurant called The Mustard Seed. They had great tuna sandwiches with grapes in them. I loved it, so I came home and added my favorite ingredients to make it just perfect!

Well, who would have thought dill pickles with grapes would make such a great sandwich. We tried this with tuna and loved the combination of flavors and textures. We bet chicken would be tasty too. This is a great summertime sandwich. If you want it extra creamy, just add a little extra Miracle Whip.
