Author Notes: This was based off of a deli chicken salad sandwich I had once. I loved it so I tried to recreate it, and then decided I liked this version better. I've also made this with turkey, which was great, and I bet it would also work with potatoes (though the fruit and nuts here are catered to chicken so might need to be adjusted). As usual, all measurements are approximate. —LucyS
Makes 5-4 cups
cups cooked chicken or turkey, shredded or cut into 1/2" dice
yellow onion or one whole shallot, diced
cups chopped celery (I like it fairly fine, so I cut each rib in half lengthwise before dicing)
cup dried cranberries
cup slivered almonds
tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 to 1
cups Mayonnaise (to taste, but enough to bind)
salt and pepper
apple, cut into about 1/4" cubes
- Combine all ingredients together and mix to bind. Add salt and pepper, and more mayonnaise or mustard, to taste.
