Chicken salad with apple, walnuts, and red onion.

  • 1 lb chicken
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 red onion chopped
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup avocado mayo
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Chicken salad with dried cranberries, walnuts, and red onions

  • 1 lb chicken
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup avocado mayo
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


Chicken salad with apples, walnuts, and red onions

  • Dice your cooked chicken breast into 1/4 cubes. Start by cutting across the breast making 1/4 inch slices and then cutting every 1/4 inch in the other direction.
  • Chop 1 cup of walnuts to a rough chop or if you prefer a fine chop then keep chopping.
  • Chop your red onion. You will need 1/4 of an onion in which you want to finely chop.
    Start by quartering the onion. Make thin slices across 1/4 of the onion and then again going the other direction. You want these finely chopped so that the onion doesn't overpower the chicken salad.
  • Wash and cut your apple. Stand the apple and cut from the stem down on all four sides and then lay the pieces down and cut them into 1/4 inch slices. Then in the opposite direction cut the again making 1/4 cubes.
  • Mix in a scoop of mayo and mix everything together until the chicken is coated with mayo. Start with a little less than 1/2 cup and add more if you need it.
  • Add ground pepper and salt to taste. Remember, if you used my air fryer chicken recipe then you will not want to add salt as the seasoning on the chicken will add enough. That's it! So good!

Chicken salad with dried cranberries, walnuts, and red onions

  • Dice up 1lb of cooked chicken into 1/4in pieces and put into a mixing bowl.
  • Add a 1/2 cup of dried cranberries into the bowl with the chicken.
  • Chop up 1/2 cup of walnuts as fine as you would like them. I like to leave them on the chunkier side for more of a crunch. Add into your mixing bowl.
  • Finely chop up 1/4 of red onion. Slice in one direction thinly and then go in the opposite direction to get a fine chop. Toss these into the mixing bowl with the other ingredients.
  • Add 1/2 cup of avocado mayo and mix everything together. Make sure that the mayo is well incorporated with the chicken.
    If you want it to be a little spicier go ahead and add some freshly ground black pepper.
