Cranberry Apple Chicken Salad Recipe

Cranberry Apple Chicken Salad

YUM! I love cranberries and apples combined in a chicken salad. The flavors together are so yummy! Try out this cranberry apple chicken salad recipe.

2 oranges, zested and juiced
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp coarse ground mustard
1 to 2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 small garlic clove, grated

1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach leaves
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup diced celery
2 medium apples, ripe but crispy, washed, cored, and diced
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/2 cup toasted pecan

Into a glass bowl, measure 2 teaspoons orange zest, then add the mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, salt, black pepper, and garlic, and whisk until combined. Keep whisking and slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup of the orange juice, whisking until dressing is smooth and comes together.
To assemble salads, place spinach in a large salad bowl. Add all the remaining salad ingredients, then drizzle dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat all the ingredients. Serve immediately. Will serve 4 as a main dish, or 6 as a light lunch.
