Decent way to use up leftover chicken. I used sour cream instead of plain yogurt because that's what I had.

I thought this was pretty good. With all of the ingredients, 2 servings did not seem worth the effort. I made 4x the recipe except only did 2x the celery, colored pepper, chicken, and walnuts based on what I had. I used yogurt ranch dressing and used some green onion for the red. For the apple I did half apple and half halved grapes, per a similar recipe. The grapes were a great sub. I just added salt and pepper to taste. This made for a filling salad this weekend. ty
