Lightened-Up Chicken Salad

I have this habit of forgetting about grapes. As in, I have this habit of forgetting that grapes exist. Do you ever do that with foods?  Like, totally go for months without eating or seeing a certain food anywhere, and then suddenly it pops up on a random cheese platter and...
