Grilled Apple and Chicken Salad

Grilled apple and chicken salad is my families favorite lunch. I grill chicken often for dinner and always throw a few extra on the grill just to make this. The last bowl I made up for my husband to take to work he never got because the kids ate it all before he even got a sandwich!

So you think your one of those people that doesn’t like apples, cranberries, or other fruit in your chicken salad. I was too but with the apples being grilled in it changes it and they just add another flavor layer to the deliciousness. But if you must go ahead and leave them out. Just use the lower amount of mayonnaise in the recipe.

My Grilled Apple and Chicken Salad recipe goes perfect with a ice cold glass of tea on a hot summer day. Its also a great way to feel summery in the winter time. My family eats it year round.
