Apple Chicken Salad

This chicken salad is so easy and so versatile, we have it quite often when a quick sandwich is in order.

And, it is healthy! 

You can substitute or mix up any of the veggies or the apple.  Use what you have on hand

  1. This sounds really good!

    I do one (veggies and fruit vary) that uses ranch dressing lol. I’m not sure that’s very healthy for me to do it that way, but I love the taste.  I want to try this one now though! The dill sounds yummy

    1. I forgot to add it above but sometimes we add some curry powder and a dash of cumin to give it an awesome smoky flavor.  It works with the apples and green onions.
