Easy Apple-Walnut Chicken Salad

Posted By Katie Rosenbrock on Jun 2, 2012 at 9:21PM

I realized something. I don’t like when cooking is complicated. I named this blog The Hungry Runner because half of it is about what I like to eat and how I like to eat it, and what I’ve learned is that I hate waiting for my food. If I’m hungry, my stomach is screaming “FEED ME NOW!” So, as I continue to share recipes and food ideas, chances are that about 98.5% of them will contain the words quick and/or easy. Exhibit A: Easy Apple-Walnut Chicken Salad.

You only need a few simple things to make this, you chop some of them up, you throw them all into a bowl, drizzle some dressing over everything, and then EAT!

Easy Apple-Walnut Chicken Salad


Ingredients

1 cup of lettuce, or your choice of leafy green (I love spinach leaves!)

1/2 of an apple, chopped into bite-sized pieces

3 teaspoons of feta cheese

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 of a grilled chicken breast, cubed

1 tablespoon of your favorite dressing (a sweet vinaigrette goes best with this)

Directions

1.) Mix all ingredients into a bowl and enjoy!

Some notes:

- You can totally do this with or without chicken. It’s so yummy either way!

- You can eat the half of the apple that you didn’t chop up for the salad as a snack!

- My faaaaavorite dressing for this salad is Annie’s Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette
