Steps:

  1. For the sweeter salad; chop/prepare all ingredients. Toss the chopped apples with lemon juice. In a bowl, mix all ingredients together. Serve on whole wheat crackers, endive, bread, or use as a dip for celery. I personally love this one with endive.
  1. For Buffalo salad; prepare all ingredients. In a bowl, mix all ingredients together. Serve on whole wheat crackers, endive, bread, or use as a dip for celery. I really like this one with crackers.

 

*You can make your own, or take some help from the store and buy a rotisserie chicken and just shred it up yourself. Try to make your own, if you can, so that you an control the sodium.
