The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. An apple a day may just keep the doctor away, after all!





Apple Cranberry Chicken Salad


  • 3 cups rotisserie chicken (diced)
  • Olive oil (as needed, for cooking)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup walnuts (chopped, or slivered almonds or pecans, toasted)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup celery (diced)
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup apple (diced)
  • 4 to 6 Tbsp. mayonnaise (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Optional: 1/8 tsp. curry powder (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Optional: good-quality bread or sandwich buns (sliced)



In a bowl, combine the diced chicken, cranberries, celery, onion, apple, and optional walnuts. In a cup or small bowl, combine 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, the lemon juice, optional curry powder, salt, and pepper. Stir the mayonnaise mixture into the chicken, adding more mayonnaise as needed for moisture and for flavor. Line the bread or sandwich buns with lettuce leaves and spread the chicken salad on the lettuce. Or serve the chicken salad on lettuce-lined plates with slices of avocado or tomatoes. Enjoy!
