A very tasty and easy to throw together salad. The dressing complements the other ingredients very well. I had to substitute toasted sesame seeds for the poppy due to allergy, but the poppy would be much prettier. Made for ZWT5.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Core and dice the apple and pear. Sprinkle the fruit with 1 or 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice to keep it from discoloring. In a large bowl, combine the diced chicken, apple, pear, grapes and chives.
  2. To make the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.
  3. Just before serving, add all of the dressing to the chicken salad and toss well to combine. Adjust seasonings, adding additional salt if necessary. Top with the toasted pecans.
