Chicken salad, apples, almonds

Top Review by kittycatmom

Yum! This was a great, healthy lunch today served on whole wheat buts. I resisted the urge to have this as soon as I made it last night, but followed the posters suggestion and waited until today. Great blend of flavors. I don't think I used the full amount of mayo, just enough to moisten. Very good! Thanks Adam! Made for PAC Spring 2009

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 gala apples (use can always use another kind...but then it wont be Gala Chicken Salad)
  • 23 cup celery
  • 12 cup sliced almonds
  • 12 tablespoon kosher salt (or reg, I just love the taste of koher)
  • 14 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 34 cup mayonnaise (I usually use light)


  1. Put the chicken in a large bowl.
  2. Dice the apple into small pieces (the smaller the better).
  3. Dice the celery just as small and add the apples celery and almonds to the chicken.
  4. Mix in the salt and pepper and lemon juice.
  5. Add the mayo with a large spoon and mix until the chicken is evenly covered.
  6. I know this is hard to do -- but cover and leave overnight. The flavors will mix well together in the fridge.
  7. You can eat it the day it's made, it just might have a little strong lemon taste -- that mixes overnight and blends well.
  8. You can always add cranberries or rasins if you want, but I like it just as is.
  9. Enjoy!
