In the French culinary canon, any dish labeled “ Véronique” includes grapes — and it is indeed a pleasure to add these sweet, juicy morsels to a chicken salad. Here, we use green grapes but you can use the red variety if you prefer. Serve this filling salad with multigrain bread or rolls and sweet pickles. Looking for a hack to chop the walnuts quickly and neatly? Place them in a small zip-close plastic bag, squeeze out the air, and seal the bag. Place the bag on a heavy work surface and pound with a heavy frying pan or rolling pin.
