Chicken Salad with Fruit


  • 1 lb cooked chicken breast
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • ¾ cup grapes (red or green), halved
  • 1 avocado, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • salt and black pepper, to taste


You can use leftover cooked chicken or cook the chicken any way you like – roast it, grill it, it doesn't matter as long as it’s cooked. Shred the chicken or chop finely.

 Combine with the avocado, dried cranberries, apple, walnuts and celery in a large bowl and mix well. Mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice and a little salt and pepper in a separate bowl. 

Pour the dressing into the bowl with all of the other ingredients and mix well to coat the ingredients with the dressing. 

Place the chicken salad in the refrigerator to chill before serving. Serve over lettuce leaves or baby spinach.
