Only 3 steps to this delicious, tangy, lightly sweet Pineapple Almond Chicken Salad! There are a myriad of different chicken salad recipes out there and they can tend to get a little humdrum… I get that. Well, this chicken salad is anything but boring!

Only 3 steps to this delicious, tangy, lightly sweet Pineapple Almond Chicken Salad- not your standard chicken salad- it's WAY better!

This is not your standard chicken salad- it’s even better! Typically, people like using chopped apples or grapes, but Pineapple DOLE Jarred Fruit takes snack or lunchtime to the next level. The fruit is juicy, incredibly tasty and super convenient. This chicken salad takes no time at all, partly because there’s no worry with cutting or peeling of the pineapple.

The first step in this recipe is to gather all ingredients. I use rotisserie or pre-cooked shredded chicken, you can buy ready-to-go. For chicken or egg salad recipes, opt for Greek yogurt to add extra protein and keep things light. To further speed this recipe along, use pre-cut celery (found in the produce department of most grocery stores) and chopped almonds. The DOLE Jarred Fruit can be found at your local grocery store in the canned fruit aisle for about $2.99 per jar. DOLE Jarred Fruit comes in five refreshing varieties- Tropical Fruit, Sliced Peaches, Pineapple Chunks, Mandarin Oranges and Mixed Fruit.

Next, simply mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Do a taste test and add salt and pepper if need. I used 1/2 cup Pineapple DOLE Jarred Fruit and 3 tablespoons of the pineapple juice, but there’s no waste because DOLE Jarred Fruit comes with a resealable lid to enjoy with other recipes or as a snack through the week.

For a protein rich snack, serve chicken salad with crackers or in lettuce wraps. This salad recipe also works great as a light lunch. A healthy snack- easy as 1, 2, 3! I alway keep DOLE Jarred Fruit on hand for a quick satisfying snack or meal. I really appreciate that it’s naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free, contains 5 servings of fruit in each jar and is packed in 100% fruit juice.
