Apple Chicken Salad Recipe
Hey guys, Vanessa here from Our Thrifty Ideas. I’m super excited to be here again this Summer sharing a fun recipe that is sure to be a hit with your family. But not only is it great for any regular meal but also perfect if you’re having a great get together with friends to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Obviously you’ll need to double or triple the recipe for a large group though.
Ingredients needed to Make Chicken Salad
(printable recipe below)
- 2 cups shredded chicken
- 2 cups purple grapes – sliced in half
- 2 large celery stalks – thinly chopped
- 2 Tablespoons orange juice
- 1/2 cup mayo
- salt & pepper to taste
- Sweet apple (type of choice) thinly sliced
- Whole wheat pitas
- orange flavored almonds
Combine the chicken, grapes and celery into a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl combine the orange juice, mayo, and salt and pepper. Stir it all together. Stir the sauce into the chicken mixture, and toss in some orange almonds. Chill until ready to serve
Place about 4 of the thinly sliced apples into half of the pita then fill the pita with the chicken mixture, and top off with the orange almonds. Then serve .
I found the orange almonds next to the produce at Walmart. I know that it seems kinda weird to put emphasis on the almonds, but they truly make the whole salad pop a little more. It’s one of the pieces that make the salad even better for summertime.
I’m sure you will love it, and all your guests will love it as well.
