Here’s a fabulous, simple chicken salad that you can put together in just a few minutes! It’s especially easy if you plan to make enough chicken with a different meal to have left-overs for this salad. This recipe can easily be doubled, and we think you’ll agree it’s refreshing and delicious.

Springtime Chicken Salad
Serves 2


  • 2 cups cooked, cooled and diced chicken breast (use left-overs from another chicken meal!)
  • 1/4 cup green apple, diced
  • 1/4 cup red grapes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup raw pecans, chopped
  • 1/3 cup homemade mayonnaise (plus a little more, if needed) – see recipe
  • Mixed Salad Greens (about 3 cups per person)
  • Himalayan pink salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 serving plates


  1. Put the first six ingredients into a bowl, and mix together well. Add a little more mayonnaise, if it seems too dry. Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
  2. Place fresh, mixed salad greens on each plate. Top each salad with half of the chicken mixture.
  3. Serve, and enjoy!

It’s really just that easy!

Be Well,
