Tart, yet sweet apples, juicy chicken, crunchy celery and savory green onions are dressed in a tangy dressing to make the ultimate chicken salad! You make it the day before so it’s perfect for lunch on-the-go. It’s also a great way to use up leftover chicken, and kids will have a blast helping to make this in the kitchen!

Grandma's Chicken Apple Salad
I live in the state of Washington, where the state fruit is the apple! I love using tart and sweet Granny Smith apples for my grandma's chicken apple salad - it's sweet, savory, tart and creamy. You make it the day before so it's perfect for a lunch on-the-go!
For the salad
  1. 4 Green Apples (such as Granny Smith,) chopped into bite size pieces
  2. 1 bunch Celery chopped
  3. 4 each Chicken breast cooled and shredded
  4. 1 bunch Green onion sliced thin
For the dressing
  1. 2 Eggs
  2. ½ teaspoon Salt
  3. ¼ teaspoon Garlic powder
  4. ½ teaspoon Dry mustard
  5. ¼ teaspoon Pepper
  6. 4 tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
  7. 1 cup Olive oil
  1. Combine the salad ingredients.
  2. To make the dressing, combine eggs, salt, garlic powder, dry mustard, pepper and cider vinegar in a food processor. While the food processor is running, slowly dribble the olive oil for a thick, creamy dressing. Warning: the dressing by itself doesn't taste great, it's a little bitter. But when it's mixed with the apples, chicken, celery and green onions, it's amazing! 🙂
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Refrigerate overnight, adjust seasonings, and serve.
