I went to the baby shower yesterday and had just the best time! The food was so tasty! The company was so cordial. The Mommy-to-be was just so happy and excited that she was going to have a baby.

The Grandma of the new baby hosted the event and she included a chicken salad from a local store on her menu. The chicken salad had grapes in it along with the usual, celery, mayo. etc. It is the best chicken salad anywhere! 

So I was looking on the internet this morning and found this recipe. It is the
Helen Corbitt’s Chicken Salad. Famed Texas cook, Helen Corbitt, created this rich chicken salad for the café menu at Neiman Marcus department stores in the 1950s. How about that! I printed it down and plan to make it – how about you?

This recipe was posted on the Saveur site.
