Chicken Salad Made With Little Green Apples

“Little Green Apples”
Do you remember that song?  According to Wikipedia, “Little Green Apples” is a song that was originally written for and released by American recording artist Roger Miller in 1968.
It had since been re-recorded by several artist includingBloodstone, but it’s a classic nevertheless.
Spring has officially sprung and there is more sunlight during the day, so my grocery food choices have also lightened up.  While shopping for the ingredients to make a light and tasty Chicken Salad, I knew that wanted to add something that would give it a little crunch. . 
After seeing a beautiful display of juicy green apples I knew they would be a perfect choice.

It’s been a long winter filled with lots of Crock Pot Meals and comfort foods so it’s time to lighten up the dinner menu.  For this mid-week meal, I used lettuce leaves instead of bread to save a few calories.

  • 2 cups cooked chicken,  diced – Perdue Short Cuts Carved Chicken Breasts
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey mustard
  • ½ Green Apple,  diced
  • 1 cup celery,  diced
  • ½ cup sweet peppers, diced
  • 4 large lettuce leaves


  • Rinse and pat dry the lettuce leaves
  • Wash and dice the celery
  • Wash and dice apple – do not peel to remove skin
  • In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, and mustard, then add the chicken, celery,  peppers, apples and stir until completely coated
  • Cover and refrigerate at least an hour or until ready to serve
  • Spoon ½ cup onto each of the lettuce leaves
Pour a glass of your favorite beverage and enjoy this other classic song by Bloodstone!
