Chicken Salad Sandwiches for a Crowd

Every once in a while I come by a recipe that quickly becomes an old favorite.  Chicken Salad Sandwiches for a Crowd has proudly been added to my repertoire.  On more than one occasion this past spring, I served these sandwiches and got rave reviews.  We entertain a lot, and when the weather gets warm and baseball and golf season come around, I love go-to recipes that can be made ahead and served with ease.  It's simple enough to prepare for a lunch box, but tasty enough for a very casual meal for guests.  I hope this one becomes part of your repertoire too!

2 teaspoons dried dill
2 teaspoons dried parsley

salt and pepper to taste

Combine mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, dill, parsley, garlic powder and salt and pepper.  This is your dressing, set aside.  Meanwhile in a large bowl toss together chicken, grapes, celery, green onions and Parmesan.  Pour dressing over chicken mixture and stir until well-combined.  Serve on sandwiches, croissants or a bed of greens.  Can be made up to a day ahead and refrigerated.
