In a large bowl, add the chicken, cubed apple, dried cranberries, and nuts of your choice.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix till it becomes a creamy dressing.
Pour the dressing over the chicken and then toss well to coat the salad.
While you can have it right away, the flavors blend well when the salad is refrigerated for a couple of hours. Enjoy this classic fall salad!
Pecans, walnuts, almonds, or cashewnuts go well with the salad, though you can choose any nuts of your choice. It's best to microwave or roast the nuts before adding it to our salad to get the best flavors.
