Recipe: Chicken Salad Waldorf Pitas

This recipe for Chicken Salad Waldorf Pitas uses a filling that's a version of the recipe for Waldorf Salad that I posted while ago …. and as I mentioned in that post… there are numerous versions of the salad… and chicken was one of the popular additions… and pecans are used in this recipe as opposed to walnuts… you can use either… but definitely try it with pecans… they have such a wonderful flavor.

I like to serve this stuffed in a pita… it’s a pleasant spin on a chicken salad sandwich.


The dressing ingredients are increased to make up for the increase in salad ingredients…. make the dressing and use as much or as little as you prefer.

I “eyeballed” the amount of honey… it’s hard to measure honey and get all the honey off the spoon… the amount listed is pretty accurate.

For information about toasting pecans please see my previous post... How to Toast Pecans.

This recipe makes approximately 4 servings.

This is a light, delicious sandwich…. serve it with soup and you have a terrific lunch or light supper….
