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!



Recipe: Chicken Salad


  • 1.5 lbs cooked shredded chicken (I use 1 whole rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 c chopped celery
  • 1/2 c chopped red onion
  • 1 c red grapes halved
  • 1/2 chopped apple
  • 2 T fresh chopped chives
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 10 cranks, freshly ground black pepper
  • 1T country Dijon mustard
  • 1 c mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c toasted chopped pecans (optional)

Directions are easy…shred your chicken and chop your fruits and vegetables.


Combine all your ingredients in a bowl….and mix it all together!


Serve it how you like it…on crackers, buns, toast, croissants….enjoy!
