Chicken Apple Almond Salad

I'm not a huge fan of leftovers... but I don't like anything to go to waste so I make sure to use everything up... either by reheating last nights meal or by re purposing it.

The best leftovers are chicken leftovers...

You can make dinner or lunches for 2 more days after a big Sunday dinner of roasted chicken.

Today's lunch Chicken Apple Almond Salad served over fresh greens is  a great way to pack some protein and iron into your  diet as well use up your leftovers and use those apples that are in season right now!

Chicken Apple Almond Salad

1 cup cubed cooked chicken
1 cubed apple (peeled or not peeled whatever your preference)
1/4 cup sliced honey roasted almonds
1 tbs diced red onion
2 tbs mayo
1 tbs sour cream
Juice of half a small lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

(recipe yields 2 servings)

Mix all your ingredients together and serve in a wrap/sandwich, over a bed of greens, in a lettuce wrap, stuff into a cored tomato... or eat it plain!
