Wednesday Yum  -

It’s not quite fall yet, but it’s never too soon to incorporate apples into a delicious chicken salad.  Apples are high in fiber and vitamin C.  The added sweetness and crunch make this chicken salad perfect to eat on it’s own or put it on some whole-grain bread for a quick lunch.

Apple Chicken Salad
 Two 4.5 ounce cans of chunk chicken
 One apple, diced
 Two stalks of celery, diced
 ½ cup of low-fat mayonnaise
1. Combine all ingredients and enjoy! 


Be well!
