Chicken Apple Cranberry Pecan Salad


    Salad Ingredients
  • 4 cups shredded chicken – I used rotisserie
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup sliced red grapes
  • 1 apple cored and chopped – I used Granny smith
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 2-3 tbs finely-chopped shallot or red onion (use more if you like)
  • Mayo Dressing Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup avocado oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Toss all the salad ingredients together in a big bowl
  2. To make the dressing, use a immersion blender in a tall container. Mix the egg, oil, lemon juice, mustard and honey. Next salt and pepper to taste. You can add anything you want to this basic mayo – herbs, honey, or whatever!
  3. Mix the mayo into your salad – as much or little as you like
  4. Eat up!
  5. This makes a big bowl of salad, plenty for a party or leftovers!

    I love love love the salad but I’m not a big fan of the dressing…maybe I did something wrong but all I could taste with the dressing was the oil.

    • Alley, I’m not sure. Maybe the dressing is just not your thing. There are tons of great dressings out there. Almost anything would work well with the salad. I’m glad you tried it. :)
