Chicken Grape Salad

I just throw this recipe together. I had some leftover chicken in the refrigerator and a handful of grapes. I don't waste anything, so I thought I would make a salad. Chicken and fruit make a tasty combination.

Here's a bit of info...

Grapes are said to be the oldest cultivated fruit. In 1700, the Spanish introduced grape cultivated to CA. Since then many different species have been ventured there. As a result CA produces nearly 90% of total crop in America. Grapes have been grown in CA for more then 300 years. Grapes also show a significant existence in the eastern parts of Canada and in British Columbia. Victorians were very excited about grapes. Grape spa or uvarium was introduced in France. These were best used for slimming and medicinal purposes.

Grapes are very nutritious. Grapes contain natural sugar and dietary fiber along with potassium and iron.
