Classic Chicken Salad With a Twist

I love making quick and delicious versions of classic recipes. We were on our way to the beach this weekend when I decided to whip up some Chicken Salad Sandwiches for lunch. This recipe differs from classic Chicken Salad because it doesn’t contain mayonnaise, and it has bits of apples and sage…Yum!

Quick Chicken Salad after the jump…

Chicken Salad With Apples and White Wine Vinaigrette

Recipe makes two sandwiches

2 cups cooked chicken. I use grocery store bought roasted chicken.
1/2 cup red onions
3/4 cups of chopped celery
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp chopped sage
1/2 cup chopped apple
3 tbs good olive oil
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp white wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Shred the chicken in a bowl. Mix all of the vegetables, garlic, sage, lemon zest, and apples. Make vinaigrette. Whisk together the oil, mustard, and vinegar until emulsified. combine vinaigrette with chicken, add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy! we had it on sourdough bread and a bit of mesculin, but you could have it with crackers, on a bed of greens, etc.
