If you’re looking for an easy, tasty low carb snack this is it! These Pecan Chicken Salad Apple Slices swap out bread for granny smith apple slices!



  • 2 cups cooked diced chicken
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced pecans, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup raisins or craisins (optional)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 34 granny smith apples sliced thin on a mandoline or carefully cut with a knife (for serving the chicken salad on)


  1. Mix the ingredients together for the chicken salad in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Place a mound of chicken salad on top of each apple slice. This will depend on the size of your apples so you can really add as much or as little as you like.
  3. Garnish with more chopped pecans and parsley.

Recipe Notes

The chicken salad can be made and eaten right away, but if you have time to let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours the flavors will come together better! If you do have time and can let it sit, just stir in the chopped pecans right before serving.
