This easy cranberry chicken salad recipe is filled with sweet cranberries, crunchy celery and toasted pine nuts – swap pecans or almonds if that’s what you have. It can be served on a croissant or bread for a sandwich, or on apple slices for a low carb option.



  • 4 cups diced, cooked chicken breast
  • 1 large celery stalk, diced
  • 12 green onions, sliced
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder (or 1 – 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard)
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl, and stir with a fork to combine.
  2. If necessary, add one tablespoon of extra mayonnaise at a time until you reach the right consistency. Adjust seasonings if needed.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
