Granny Smith Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

Granny Smith Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

Skip the Wendy’s drive-through and instead make your own apple pecan chicken salad from scratch.

Tart Granny Smith apples, meaty pecans and breaded chunks of chicken are topped with a homemade honey orange balsamic vinaigrette. This hearty salad is delicious and tastes better than anything on the fast food restaurant’s menu.

I was surprised how tasty it was. I decided I could make a healthier version at home using a homemade dressing. Challenge excepted!

I think my version is better than anything fast food.

I’ve been eating a lot of salads for lunch as part of my New Year’s resolution. I am doing a great job with that…it’s April after all. I’m really not one to make resolutions but eating healthier shouldn’t take effort. And the salad is so delicious it doesn’t feel like a chore.
