Expert Tips

To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then stirring constantly until they are light brown.

Dried cherries can be used instead of the red grapes.

You can use frozen diced cooked chicken, thawed, or cut-up deli rotisserie chicken.
