Keyword: chicken waldorf salad
Servings: 4


  • 2 cups chopped grilled chicken breast
  • 1 medium apple diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped walnuts toasted, if you'd like
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dijon mustard
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • fresh thyme for garnish (optional)


  • Grill chicken: See notes in post above for how to grill the chicken if you haven't done so already. Let cool, chop chicken into chunks and measure out two cups.
  • Mix together: Add chicken, diced apple, celery, onion and walnuts in a large bowl. In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice and mustard until combined.
  • Toss with dressing: Add dressing to the bowl with the chicken mixture and toss until everything is well combined. Top with fresh thyme, if using.
  • Serve: Serve salad as is, in a wrap, sandwich or as a topping for salad.
  • Store: Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3-5 days in the refrigerator. Unfortunately chicken salad doesn't freeze well so if you meal prep this salad plan to eat it within 3-5 days of making!


  • Add grapes: If you're a grape lover, you can totally add grapes in! Maybe start with 1/4 cup chopped grapes and use a bit less apple chunks.
