Apricot Chicken Salad
Peach preserves are a unique addition to this updated classic.
Why This Recipe Works
For this Apricot Chicken Salad recipe, we blended apricot preserves with mayonnaise to create the base for the dressing. Lemon juice brightened the flavors, and a shot of cayenne pepper mitigated the sweetness of the preserves. Sliced almonds added a crunchy texture. We toasted the nuts in a skillet over medium heat until lightly browned for the best flavor.
