If you read the blog on a regular basis, it’s no surprise to you that I made a spicy dish. My family and I love a bit of heat in just about every recipe, not overpowering though, just enough to give the recipe a little ZING. A little kick. I added grapes to my Spicy Mustard Chicken Salad recipe too, they are the perfect balance to the jalapenos, making this chicken salad a bit spicy, a bit sweet, full of crunchy  textures, and jam packed with flavor. Did I mention it’s healthy too? That’s a huge WIN in my book!
