Chicken Salad Balsamic

I believe that my grad school roommate, Brandi originally found this recipe to take on a picnic. It is a really nice alternative to standard chicken salad because there is no mayo to spoil in the heat. It's light and refreshing, perfect for summer.


3 cups diced cold, cooked chicken
1 cup diced apple
1/2 cup diced celery
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
5 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, apple, celery, onion and walnuts.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and oil and pour over the salad. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well. Let rest 10 to 15 minutes, mix again and chill.
