My husband and I both love this as a main dish salad. What could be easier, especially on a busy day or a hot day!

What a delicious Waldorf salad. We loved the addition of chicken. Not traditional, but makes the salad more of a meal. There are no overpowering herbs or seasoning in this salad. It has the perfect balance of sweet and savory with just the right amount of crunch. Using canned chicken means you can make this in a pinch, but we think it would be even better with a rotisserie chicken from the deli. This chicken Waldorf salad is the perfect light lunch in the hot summer months. The Test Kitchen
