help please, making really good chicken salad

Hi y'all...I had a craving today for chicken salad and bought one of those prepared/deli chickens from the grocery store. But, I can't seem to find a recipe using the ingredients I have on hand and I'd love to make some that's REALLY good for the rye bread I also bought (just for the chicken salad, lol). The ingredients I have are: mayo., whipping cream, onion, celery, green grapes, a LITTLE lemon, almond and walnuts. I've got a small assortment of herbs.
I'm so wanting to try some with the whipping cream, tho all I have is a blender...would that work or would a whisk work (say that 5 times, LOL)?
Would you use almonds or walnuts and should either be toasted first?
I have dill and sweet pickle relish but would rather not use it if possible.
Do I need chopped eggs?
Would you use cheese on a chicken salad sandwich? I have sliced swiss and Velveeta slices
I.e., I guess I'm asking for your favorite recipes for delicious chicken salad. I'd so appreciate any feedback. Thanks so much!
