Autumn Chicken Salad w/ Apples, Grapes & Walnuts


Yet another way to use up last night's roast chicken (you must think I make a lot of roast chicken...........) and some beautiful, just picked apples from N.J. (and yes, I went apple picking).

Here's how:

1+ cup of shredded cooked chicken breast
8 red grapes, sliced
1 celery stalk, sliced
small handful of chopped walnuts
1/4 cup of sliced green onion
1 Granny Smith apple, diced (I leave the skin on if it's an organic apple)
1 tsp of grainy French mustard
1 heaping tablespoon of Hellman's REAL mayonnaise (or plain Greek yogurt)
juice of half a lemon
salt & pepper
fresh cilantro, optional

Mix all together and season with salt & pepper to taste.
Refrigerate for a few hours so flavors meld together.

Lunch is served.


Enjoy!

This is very close to how I make my chicken salad too but I also add tarragon.

It's like a Waldorf Salad with chicken!

I want leftovers from you - I love the way you plated it too.

I made this last night and dug into it today, along with mixed greens. That is one excellent chicken salad. Thanks, Stacey!
