When did Waldorf Creep into my Sandwich?

Many times you may be on the go, and just want to reach into the fridge and grab a quick (but healthy) 'something' to have for lunch.  It could be a morning when you're rushing off to work, or a busy weekend with no time to sit down. You can relate to that I'm sure. With summer around the corner, a cold meal is welcome.

Chicken Salad is a healthy alternative to other fillings (since processed meats are a No-no!, and you don't want to have canned tuna more than once a week at most ...thanks to mercury content).

I love the combination or sweet and savory, and adding low-sugar fruits to a sandwich is both tasty and smart!

Waldorf Chicken (or Tofu) Salad

Whenever you have leftover cooked chicken, set some aside to make this salad.  It keeps for 2 - 3 days, and if you finely chop the ingredients you can serve it with whole wheat baked pita chips as a snack.
