This is a pretty salad and tastes good, too. There are 22 apple growers in the county where I live, so I have plenty of fresh apples to use for cooking. Years ago, there used to be local apple contests that my two children and I would enter. One year we made a clean sweep of the awards - and I believe this recipe was one of the winners!
“My husband and I love salads, and we especially love this one! The apple flavor really compliments the tender chicken and rich cheese,” says Debbie Purdue of Westland, Michigan. You'll love how quickly this elegant medley comes together!

Using fat-free instead of regular mayonnaise in this chicken salad slashes nearly 30 g fat per serving! That makes room in the recipe for tasty bacon, blue cheese and almonds.
