Apple Walnut Chicken Salad
It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon in Tampa and the weather is starting to get warmer so I’m enjoying the outdoors while I can (before the heat becomes unbearable and I barricade myself indoors until October). Figured I’d enjoy a little lunch while I was out here.
One of my favorite springtime/summertime lunch dishes is an Apple Walnut Chicken Salad; it’s healthy and insanely simple. Just some shredded chicken, diced green apples and some chopped walnuts mixed with a little light mayonnaise. Then just hit it with a pinch of kosher salt to bring out the flavor and a couple of heavy grinds of black pepper. I prefer to chill it for a little while as I like a cooler sandwich.
This afternoon I just loaded the chicken salad into a whole wheat wrap. Served it with some baked kettle chips and paired it with a Blue Moon Valencia Grove Orange Amber Ale whose fruit notes compliment the apples in the salad perfectly.
