Combine diced chicken with a little red onion, celery, currants and apple for a simple salad that has a nice crunch, great color and a wonderfully fresh combination of flavors. The green apple chicken salad from Lunch in Culver City is similar to a classic Waldorf, and it's just as easy to prepare.
