Apples are in season! Use them to make my Grandma’s Chicken Apple Salad. It’s so yummy and easy to make! In the video I agree with Bill Wixey that the dressing is low fat but actually it’s not – the extra virgin olive oil is fat. BUT we don’t heat it so it’s a healthy fat!

I hope you like it!


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.

  1. In the dressing you have 2 RAW eggs. I thought eggs should always be cooked before eating. Let me know that this is OK, because I love chicken and apples. Thanks, Lilly

    1. Hi Lilly, don’t worry. As long as it’s fresh, raw eggs are OK (unless you are pregnant). Homemade mayonnaise uses raw eggs too, so this is kind of a twist on homemade mayo. If raw eggs bug you, you can use mayonnaise and add a bit of garlic powder and apple cider vinegar to try to get the flavor of this dressing. And the apples, chicken, celery and onions add a bunch to the flavor, so judge the taste after it’s been sitting for at least a few hours in the fridge (overnight is best!) Thank you for watching my video, and I hope you enjoy it!
