It's too hot to cook! Using a rotisserie chicken from your supermarket makes this chicken salad fast and easy. Apples and nuts add a nice crunch, while the spicy mustard, lemon juice and hot sauce add a little kick. And the hint of cream cheese makes it tastes indulgent. 

Using mayo with olive oil cuts back on the bad fats normally found in mayo and adds good heart healthy fats. 

Time saving tip - I buy family packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts and bake on the weekends, then put 2-3 in ziplock bags and place in the freezer. 

TANGY CHICKEN & APPLE SALAD

3 lg or 4 small chicken breast, cooked & shredded
1/4 cup chopped pickles (your choice) or relish
1/2 small red onion, chopped
1/2 apple, peeled & chopped (any kind)

Dressing:
3/4 cup mayo with olive oil
2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tbsp spicy brown mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1-3 dashes hot sauce (optional)

OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds

In a large bowl, whisk dressing ingredients together until well blended. 

Add chicken, pickles, onions & apples and stir until well coated with the dressing. 

Can be eaten immediately, but I prefer to make this up the night before and have it for lunch the next day. Delicious on whole grain bread, croissants or a bed of romaine lettuce.

I hope you like it!

>> "chopped pickles (your choice) or relish" Sweet Or Dill?

For years I used sweet pickles or sweet pickle relish, but was diagnosed with diabetes & other health issues last year, so no more sweet pickles. Now I make it with dill pickles. So, you can use whatever kind of pickles you want. If you don't want to chop them, then use relish. :)
