Apple Chicken Salad

IMG_0355
No, this is not a recipe from Picture Me Cooking. I hoping to get to that tomorrow. I actually made this chicken salad a couple of days ago for my lunch. It was easy and delicious. I love adding apple to my chicken salad. It adds such a nice sweetness and crunch.

I used leftover chicken breast from the night before so that made the whole lunch making process quick and easy. I decided not to put my chicken salad on bread or a bun but instead I placed a nice scoop of it on top of a bed of romaine. It was light and tasty. A perfect summer meal!

Ha! Lovin' the Bananarama, sister! I can handle fruit in my chicken salad, but my grandma put apple in tuna salad once and I almost died.

This looks amazing! I second the comments on the presentation. It's superb. I love chicken salad, never had it with apples.

Oh Kim, I love chicken salad with apples...it makes the chicken salad so refreshing and crunchy...great for Summer :-)

Natalie said...

so simple & delicious! the "crunch" in chicken salad is always the best part!

Stella said...

Kim, I think we're kindred spirits (smile). I made a chic chic salad today with apple and celery. It's not really chicken (tempeh instead), but it's like this with crunchy apples.
Your real chicken version sounds wonderful. As much as I do like tempeh, I'd rather have your version!

The Blonde Duck said...

That looks so cool and refreshing--perfect for this 105 degree weather!

Chicken salads make for a great lunch, especially when you mix up the flavors with apple add-ins! Delicious.

Cool cool summer... That's all I remember from the song... But this salad fits the bill! Chicken ready to go, a little crunch and a quick dressing. Perfect!

simpledaisy said...

That looks awesome! I don't eat chicken....but I bet I could use tofu instead:):)

Mimi said...

Leftover chicken in the fridge is always so helpful!

I've never tried chicken salad with apple, I'm going to try this one!

marla {family fresh cooking} said...

Your chicken salad with apple looks wonderful. I too would prefer it over romaine vs. sandwich. xo
