My best friend’s mom makes the best chicken salad, hands down. Some of my favorite memories growing up include attending their family parties and having Tammy’s chicken salad. As soon as I received a box of gorgeous Lady Alice Apples from Rainier Fruits, I knew I was going to create a variation on her chicken salad. Don’t forget to enter here for some great prizes for the #BrunchWeek giveaway.
This is a bit different than the chicken salad of my childhood, but I love the addition of apples. The apples give it a nice, sweet crunch, and I left the skin on so their gorgeous color would show through the salad. It’s nice to see bits and pieces of apples throughout, and gives it a twist on the classic.
I love having a variety of food at brunch, both sweet and savory, and chicken salad is a classic party dish. Whether it’s Mother’s Day brunch, tea parties, or a day with the girls, this chicken salad is sure to please. You can serve it with regular (or mini) croissants, wraps, rolls, or even lettuce cups.
