Chicken-Apricot Salad


  • 3 cups cooked chicken or turkey (approximately 1 whole breast)

  • 1 red, unpeeled apple, chopped finely

  • 4 stalks celery, chopped

  • 4 stalks green onions, chopped

  • 1 lemon, grated peel

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 2 tsp poppy seeds

  • 1 Tbs honey

  • 1 Tbs grainy mustard

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 12 dried apricots, cut into quarters

  • 1/2 head leafy lettuce

Make enough for tomorrow’s lunch—you can also include fresh corn, Italian chicken sausage, or chopped lettuce. The dressing is the key here.


  • If the chicken is not already cooked, poach it gently in a little water while you chop and mix everything else. When it's cooked through, chop it.
  • Finely grate the peel of a fresh lemon into a large bowl, then juice the lemon into the same bowl. Remember to grate the peel first.
  • Add poppy seeds, mustard, honey, oil, and apricots to the bowl, then let apricots soften for at least 15 minutes in this dressing (less if apricots are fresh).
  • Add the chicken, apple, celery, and green onions and mix well. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
