Waldorf Salad (with chicken).

I've been whipping up my Waldorf (chicken) Salad concoction a lot lately--it is delicious on bread as a sandwich, stuffed into a pita pocket, served over baby greens as a salad, or even eaten straight out of the bowl all by itself. I served it at Rigel's birthday party with pita pockets and bread as part of a sandwich bar, and it got some good reviews. Best of all, it's quick and easy to make.
Waldorf Chicken Salad
2 C apples (gala, fugi, or pink lady are great), cored and chopped
1/2-1 tsp raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 C red seedless grapes, halved (or quartered if large)
1 celery stalk, chopped fine
2 12.5 oz cans Chicken Breast (Kirkland Signature brand preferred), drained and shredded
2 TB honey
1 C Grapeseed Oil Vegenaise
3/4 C walnut pieces
Place apples in large mixing bowl, toss with cider vinegar until coated (drain excess liquid). Mix in grapes, celery, and chicken breast. In separate bowl, combine vegenaise and honey (add honey to taste), mix well. Add vegenaise and honey mixture to large bowl of chicken and fruit, mix well, adding walnuts until completely combined. Refrigerate until served. Makes 4 servings (approximately).

I wish you were here too, but even more so, I wish I lived in California!!! I LOVE northern California. I was there last September and if my kids had been with us too, I wouldn't have come home!!! ;)
