Waldorf Salad with Grilled Chicken

The Waldorf Salad was originally created between 1893 and 1896 at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City, which is presently known as the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. I've always loved the combination of the salty crunchy nuts and the sweet tartness of the apple. This recipe takes the salad one step further with the addition of the grilled chicken. I simply season my chicken with Mrs. Dash's lemon pepper and put it on my Forman Grill. Then I assemble my salad and place the warm chicken on top and I have a great no frills lunch with oodles of flavor in just minutes.

1 medium apple, chopped into medium size chunks
1 stalk of celery, chopped
Walnut pieces
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/2 T lemon juice
1 T honey
A dash of nutmeg
1/2 of a chicken breast
Mixed salad greens

Mix together the mayonnaise, honey, and lemon juice and set in the refrigerator. While the dressing is chilling, grill your chicken and toss together the apple, celery, walnuts, and raisins. When chicken is done, add the dressing to the apple (or Waldorf) mixture along with the nutmeg and toss.

Divide salad greens on to two plates and then top each plate with half of the Waldorf mixture. Top with warm sliced chicken breast and serve.

Makes two salads
