There are probably millions of chicken salad recipes, but this is my favorite; tons of garden fresh fruits and veggies….simply summer delicious! Like most things, when you make it yourself, it turns out being much healthier too!

- 1 c red grapes halved
- 1/2 chopped apple
- 2 T fresh chopped chives

Directions are easy…shred your chicken and chop your fruits and vegetables.
Combine all your ingredients in a bowl….and mix it all together!
