Chicken Salad Apple Bowls Recipe

This Chicken Salad Apple Bowls recipe combines a classic chicken salad filling with crisp fresh apples as the base for the salad.  It’s a gorgeous presentation and you get a bite of an apple in your chicken salad in every bite! 

The combination of savor chicken salad made healthier with Greek yogurt rather than mayo, and sweet crunchy apples is a delightful departure from eating chicken salad as a sandwich.  

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Open Nature® plain Greek nonfat yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons O Organics® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt-free seasoning (such as Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Garlic & Herb)
  • 2 cups diced skinless boneless rotisserie chicken
  • 2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced or slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or dried cranberries
  • 4 medium apples
  • lemon juice 
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • parsley, for garnish

 

 

How to Make Chicken Salad in Apple Bowls

In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, mustard, lemon juice and salt-free seasoning. 

Stir in diced chicken, celery, toasted almonds, and dried cherries or cranberries. Add salt and pepper, to taste, if desired.

Carefully trim the top ½-inch off a medium-sized apple with a knife, then set it aside.

Use a large spoon to scoop out the apple core and surrounding area, leaving about 1/3-inch of apple around the edges to make an edible apple bowl.

    Gorgeous presentation! Love that this is lightened up, but I did miss the tanginess of mayo, so I added a teaspoon to the chicken salad. My granddaughter will love these in her lunch.

    1. Hi Barb, you can totally add mayo here – it works great. I used Greek yogurt to lighten it up, but classic chicken salad is made with mayo.
