Waldorf Chicken Sandwiches


This weekend was ridiculously hot! We reached highs of 39 degrees all weekend!! Although we live near a beautiful lake with endless beaches, there is only so much sun and heat you can take in two days, and this is coming from a heat lover. I spent the majority of my mornings dipping in our kiddie pool and lounging beside the mister and the afternoons were spent fully submerged in the cool lake to elude the scorching rays at the peek of the heat. But after a long day under the sun, it’s hard to have much of an appetite, much less an appetite for anything warm or heavy. And since I can’t live off watermelon alone, I decided to try this waldorf chicken salad recipe. I am not much of a chicken salad fan but this recipe was delicious! With nutty toasted pine nuts tossed in a tangy dressing with fresh ingredients, it was a perfect summer night dinner. So if you are feeling worn out by Mother Nature and need a light refreshing dinner that replenishes all the nutrients you sweat out, this is the one to try! Enjoy!


  • 1/2 cup pine nuts (roasted)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3-4 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 celery stalk diced
  • 1/2 cup dried currants
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


1. Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve on fresh bread or over a bed of lettuce. Tha’ts all!!
