How To Make Waldorf Chicken Salad

This healthy salad is filled with lean protein, fruit and heart-healthy nuts. I lighten this up a bit by using a combo of mayo and Greek yogurt.

What To Serve With Chicken Waldorf Salad

I like to serve this over a bed of greens such as baby arugula and baby spinach, in a lettuce wrap, or with a whole grain roll or wrap.

Chicken breast, apples, grapes, pecans and celery in a creamy dressing. It's a perfect combination of flavors and textures. I served this over a bed of baby arugula and baby spinach, but this is also wonderful on a whole grain roll or in a healthy low carb wrap.

Ingredients

  • 7 oz 1 breast poached chicken breast (recipe follows)
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and cut into small cubes (I used Granny Smith)
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup light Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp 0% Greek yogurt, I like Stonyfield
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp pecans or walnuts
  • 6 cups mixed baby greens like spinach and arugula

Instructions

  • To poach chicken breast: Cover chicken breast in broth in a small pot, add water if it doesn't cover the chicken.
  • Add salt and pepper, a piece of celery and it's leaves (you could add herbs like parsley, garlic, onion, or whatever you want) and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and cook 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, cover tight and let it sit for 15-20 minutes or until thickest part of the breast registers 160 degrees. Chicken will be cooked through.
  • Drain, let it cool and cut into small cubes.
  • Combine mayo, yogurt, salt, pepper and mix well.
  • Add chicken, grapes, apples, celery, and let it chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat it.
  • Mix in pecans right before serving.
  • Serve over baby greens.
