Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

I don't know why this picture makes the salad look red.  It's not red, but it is delicious.  It's really a pretty basic chicken salad recipe, but there's one important difference:  Whipping Cream.  You whip cream and add it at the end and boy, does it make it yummy!!!  I love easy summer, no cook, delicious meals.  We enjoy this as a sandwich in a croissant.  Add sliced avocado and it's over the moon delicious!
Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad (Slightly altered)
4 cups cooked chicken, diced (I used rotisserie chicken, but breasts only would be good, too)
1 cup mayonaise
1 cup diced celery
1  cup grapes, halved
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
1 bunch green onion, chopped (opt:  this wasn't in the original recipe, but I think it needs it)
1 tsp salt (more or less, depending on how seasoned the chicken is)
1/2 cup toasted chopped almonds or cashews
1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped

Combine all except the whipping cream.  Gently fold in the cream after all is mixed together.  Serve on croissants or on a lettuce leaf.
