CHICKEN SALAD with CRANBERRIES, SLIVERED ALMONDS AND GREEN APPLE
- 2 cups cooked chicken preferably roasted and cooled to room temperature or chilled, chopped into bite size chunks
- ¼ cup dried sweetened cranberries
- ¼ cup slivered almonds rough chopped
- ¼ cup Granny Smith apple peeled, cored and finely chopped
- ¼ cup celery finely chopped
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Adjust seasoning to your personal taste. Pile on slices of your favorite sandwich bread and dig in!
I'm choosing your chicken salad over the other sandwich options 😉 It sounds perfect!
PS…my youngest sister went to the University of California Santa Cruz…somehow she found it more appealing than staying in Iowa! I can't blame her~
First, swimming is the best! I loved it and really need to get back into it.
Second, onion sandwich? Whattt!
Third, I love chicken salad with cranberries and apples. The chicken salad we had growing up was tons of mayo and tiny chunks of chicken. Once I tasted the sweet tartness of cranberries in chicken salad – and way less mayo – there was no going back.
my cousins use to eat a mayo banana and black pepper sammy. I thought it sounded so GROSS till i tried it then yumm. your post has me craving one. Another weird thing we ate canned pears with a dollop of mayo in the center sprinkled with parm cheese yep the stuff in the green can no less

Ok the only think funnier than reading your comment was that when I read it aloud to my husband he perked up at the description of your 'salad' at the end and said '…..with walnuts!'. Apparently his Mom served the same thing but 'elevated it' with the nuts. I'll take my Mom's pear halves in lime jello I think!
Do they even make the 'green can' anymore? What a great flashback, thank you!
Hm, well, today I just want to let you know, that I nominated you for the versatile blogger award.

Very kind of you, thanks! Would I have to eat any of the sandwiches in this post to get the award?! If so I'm not so sure….
Ah, no worries!
