This Waldorf Chicken Salad is light and refreshing. Made with Greek yogurt, dried plums, and apples for a sweet and savory salad. Prep this ahead of time for a quick work week lunch.
This recipe is one that I’ve made in my kitchen for a while… I love a sweet and savory lunch option. One that I can prepare in advance and eat off all week long. I like to toss this Waldorf Chicken Salad into wraps (noted), or on a big pile of greens… which happens most often over here.
I just love a big ole salad lunch… but I gotta have my protein so that’s where this Waldorf Chicken Salad comes in. It’s protein packed from the lean shredded chicken and greek yogurt.
When it’s too hot to heat up the kitchen, rotisserie chicken is my protein of choice for no-cook meals.
Serve this Waldorf Chicken Salad for a light summertime lunch or dinner. It’s easy to toss together and no cooking required. Less time spent in the kitchen = more time doing things that make me happy, like being with my family, working out or being outdoors.
I love to eat nourishing foods and the process of chopping and creating… but those DISHES tho… that is the part I dislike and wish didn’t even exist. If we could just get rid of the dishes, life would be much better.
Don’t you agree?
Well, a girl can dream.
