Apple Chicken Salad

apple chicken salad

I’m loving this hearty chicken salad full of apples and celery with a sweet lemon tarragon dressing. Use any combination of regular or light mayo that your diet and taste buds agree on.The lemon instantly freshens everything up and helps the mayo thin out so you’ll use less than if you did this without the lemon.

You’ll Need

2 cups diced/shredded roast chicken

1 apple, diced

3 stalks celery, diced 

3 green onions, diced

1/2 cup sliced almonds

3/4 - 1 cup mayonnaise (I use half light mayo and half regular)

Juice of 1 large lemon or 2 small lemons

1 tablespoon dried tarragon or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon 

Salt and Pepper

To make

Combine chicken, apple. celery and onions and almonds in a large bowl.

Add mayonnaise and lemon juice and stir to combine. I start with about half a cup of mayo and then add the lemon juice to stretch it farther. Add more mayo and lemon juice until everything is thinly coated and coming together.

Stir in tarragon, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve on salad, crusty rolls of with lettuce wraps.

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it."

— Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love

"The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."
