Spiralized Cucumber Chicken Waldorf Salad

This cooling summer salad is as delicious as it is fun to eat! The classic flavors of a Waldorf Salad, updated with a healthy cashew based dressing, and on a fun bed of fruit and veggie "noodles." To save time, use leftover chicken rather than preparing the chicken in the recipe. We also love this salad with a simple drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and lemon juice.

  • 1 chicken breast I used Grilled Moroccan Chicken

Instructions

  • Spiralize cucumber and apple using the small noodle blade.
  • Top the cucumber and apple "noodles" with grapes, celery, peppers, walnuts and sunflower seeds.
