Chicken Waldorf Salad

Lauren Conforti


My mother taught me to make Waldorf Salad and I used to make it every Thanksgiving. Adding chicken can make it a light summer lunch! And it's a great way to use up leftover chicken.

How to Make Chicken Waldorf Salad


  1. Core the apples. Cut into bite-sized chunks. You can peel them, but I like to leave the peel on. It adds a nice color to the salad.
  2. As you cut up the apple, place chunks in large bowl of water with juice of 1/2 lemon added to the water, to prevent browning.
  3. In another bowl, combine mayonnaise, tsp. lemon juice & sugar. Mix well.
  4. Drain apples.
  5. Combine remaining ingredients with apples & mayo mixture.
  6. Chill before serving.
