Maple Dijon Cranberry Chicken Salad Sandwiches

with almonds & sriracha … on toast with avocado slices

Maple Dijon Chicken Salad Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #LowFat #Chicken #Sandwich # recipe

I had a bit of leftover chicken in my fridge and wanted to do something a little different with it. I’ve been rather smitten with the Maple Dijon combination ever since I made that Spicy Maple Dijon dipping sauce for my meatball kebabs, so I decided to try it out in a chicken salad. I added some dried cranberries and toasted almonds, and there is some Greek yogurt in there, too, for an extra healthy twist.

It turned out to be just the right combination of sweet, creamy and tart, soft, chewy and crunchy … a lively mix of flavors and textures that dances in your mouth.

Maple Dijon Cranberry Chicken Salad Sandwich


  • 2 Tablespoons light mayonnaise

  2. This sounds delicious. I am always looking to get away from a total mayo based salad, because I don’t like mayo.
