Copycat Kosher - Newk's Famous Chicken Salad

Founded in 2004, Newk’s is a casual U.S. restaurant concept. No, it is not kosher. This is one of its most popular salads.  We serve it as dinner entrée or a Shabbos lunch appetizer salad. It is particularly light and delicious for warm weather meals. 


 3 lbs. grilled boneless chicken, cut into chunks
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2/3-cup pecans, chopped
¼ cup red onions, chopped
½ cup celery, chopped
1-cup mayonnaise
1 cup sliced seedless grapes
½ cup dried cranberries
1/4-teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon celery seeds
½ teaspoon sugar


Combine all ingredients together except grapes. Then gently fold in grapes
Present over greens; Serves about 8 as an entree.


KosherEye notes: Rotisserie chicken can be used instead of grilled chicken
Optional additions: Walnuts or macadamias instead of pecans, pineapple or apples instead of grapes.
