Chicken Salad with Apples & Cranberries
Health Highlights


2 cup Chicken, cooked (shredded or diced)
3 medium stalk(s) Celery (organic, chopped)
1 cup chopped Apple (organic)
1/4 cup Cranberries, dried
2 tsp Lemon juice
2 tbsp Parsley, fresh (chopped)
1 pinch Salt and pepper (unrefined, mineral-rich salt & organic black pepper)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain, 2% M.F. (organic, unsweetened)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain, 5% M.F., Liberte (unsweetened)


  1. Combine the chicken, celery, apple, and cranberries in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and lemon juice, then combine with the chicken mixture.
  3. Stir in the parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.


  • You can substitute the parsley with cilantro or fresh spinach if you desire.
  • If you are preparing chicken breast, fresh:
    • Preheat the oven to 400 F, drizzle the chicken with olive oil, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper.
    • Bake the chicken for 25 to 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
    • Remember, the chicken will continue to cook from residual heat after you pull it out of the oven.
    • Let the breasts sit for 5 to 10 minutes and then take the internal temperature to ensure it is 165 F.
    • Shred, slice, or dice chicken as required for the recipe.
  • Serving options: 
    • For a hearty option: serve stuffed into a pita, rolled into a wrap, scoop with crackers, or mix in with leftover rice or quinoa.
    • For a lighter option: serve wrapped in organic romaine lettuce leaves or on sweet organic bell pepper halves.
