Chicken Waldorf Salad

This sweet chicken salad is especially good paired with whole wheat rolls.  Cut the ingredients finely to serve on sliced bread, and a bit more coarsely if you’re going to serve it over greens as a main dish salad. This is especially delicious served in whole grain Pita pockets.

CHICKEN-WALDORF SALAD

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and then cooled
2 large (or 3 medium) Gala apples (or other crisp sweet apple), do not peel
3 – 4 stalks celery
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins
Mayonnaise
Honey
Pinch of salt

Chop cooked and chilled chicken breasts, apples and celery.  If the chicken salad will be served in sandwiches, chop your ingredients finely.  If you plan to serve it over salad greens, chop the ingredients more coarsely. Stir chicken, apples, celery, pecans and raisins together in large bowl. In a small bowl, spoon in enough mayonnaise to coat salad ingredients, add a pinch of salt and enough honey to sweeten and thin. Pour dressing over salad ingredients, toss to coat.

For a main dish salad, scoop a large, mounded spoonful of chicken salad over individual plates of salad greens.
For sandwiches, spoon chicken salad onto firm rolls, or into pita pockets.

  • Mmmm sounds yummy!! Also sounds like a good way to use up some leftover turkey after Thanksgiving for a different twist.  Thanks!

  • My mom and I make this salad, too, with a few differences.  We tend to use walnuts, instead of pecans, and we add grapes (green or red – either is nice).  I enjoy this as a “take to work” lunch with wheat crackers – very filling, and keeps my brain alert for the afternoon at work.:fun:

  • I made this today for lunch, YUMMMMMMMY! I can’t stop eating it! I did add a little chopped onion and salt and pepper. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Jengi33, I’m glad you liked it.  Sure, add salt & pepper and anything else to suit your fancy!  That’s how a recipe becomes your own.
