Apple and Craisin Chicken Salad

A great lunch for me CRAZY MOM at work (trying to eat healthy and NOT go to fast food) and this works GREAT for my twins lunches too (High School and it's still COOL to bring your lunch to school, gotta LOVE my kids small Christian school, they have a great group of girls they sit with everyday and they all bring their lunches and sometimes bring lunches and desserts for each other too!!). My girls LOVE eating healthy all week long (the weekends though are a whole different story).

Last week we enjoyed this great Chicken Salad recipe we found at Dinners for a Year and Beyond. We decided not to put it on bread and ate it over a bed of lettuce. We also used different varieties of apples as they used just Granny Smith Apples. We learned a few apple tricks in Oak Glen while picking apples. One trick was it's a MUST to use different kinds of apples to blend the taste of any recipe you make. I believe we used Jonagold, Gala and Pink Pearl for this recipe.

Apple and Craisin Chicken Salad

4 cups cooked & shredded chicken (we use the precooked rotisserie chicken)
2 apples, diced
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup Craisins
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
