Cranberry Apple Walnut Chicken Salad

A chunky chicken salad packed with chewy dried cranberries, fresh tart apples, crunchy walnuts and the subtle bite of red onion. It’s held together with mayonnaise and a touch of mustard seasoned with sweet dill, salt and pepper. It is the best chicken salad I ever made. Or ate.


  • 1 cup cooked chicken, cut in bite-sized pieces (I like Rotisserie)
  • 1/2 cup diced apple (I used Gala)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped, dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • salt and pepper to taste


    In a medium bowl toss everything together until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    Use as a sandwich filling or to top a leafy salad.
