Chicken Waldorf Salad is the perfect combination of sweet and savory. Crispy apples, juicy grapes and crunchy nuts are combined to create the perfect bite!Chicken Waldorf Salad is such a timeless salad, that I am always looking forward to make it for holidays. I like using a mix of green and red apples to add some color, also juicy, seedless grapes are added into the mix. A handful of raisins will add great texture and also a sweet finish, that goes well with the fruit loaded salad. I like to also add either pecans or walnuts, and if I make this for Thanksgiving a handful of cranberries are such a good idea. The Chicken Waldorf Salad is loaded with lean protein and lots of fruits, covered in a creamy and simple dressing! Easy to make and always a success!

Leftovers of this salad are great, I am always looking to have some on hand. I like to pack it for lunch the next day and make chicken salad sandwiches on buttery croissants. The combo is so tasty, you absolutely have to try it. For a lighter alternative, you can serve this salad on top of iceberg lettuce, or even fill the lettuce leaves with it for a quick lunch or snack.

Obviously you can skip the chicken and make this as a vegetarian Waldorf Salad, it will still taste delicious. The salad packs great flavors and a bountiful of textures: crispy apples, crunchy nuts, chewy raisin and juicy grapes! Make sure you don’t forget about dessert, the 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Mousse is always a success!
