Pecan Chicken Salad

Pecan chicken salad is loaded with sweet, juicy grapes, crunchy pecans, poppy seeds, and lots of fresh herbs. The dressing is made from a mix of Greek yogurt and mayonnaise, making it a healthier twist on the classic. Use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to make this quickly and no-cook. It's the absolute BEST chicken salad, and you'll serve it at every summer cookout and barbecue!
