Chicken salad is a great lunch staple because it’s versatile, can be made several days in advance, and is easy to take-on-the-go. In this colorful version, grapes add sweetness and chopped celery adds crunch. The lemony dressing’s base is part Greek yogurt and part light mayonnaise and gets its earthy notes from cumin seeds. Here, we suggest serving it over a bed of spring greens, but it would also be delicious over baby kale or baby arugula. To save time, grab a rotisserie chicken from your supermarket’s deli instead of cooking your own. When fresh cherries are in season, you can make this salad using pitted and halved cherries.
