Triple Fruit Chicken Salad

triple fruit chicken salad by fresh and fit

Nothing beats a cool sandwich or wrap on a hot day. These triple fruit chicken salad pitas are bursting with fresh fruit flavor. You don’t typically see cherries in a chicken salad, but what could be better than the fruit of the season? This recipe is sweet and tangy, yet savory and salty.  There is also a satisfying crunch from the fresh apples and celery combo.  I lightened it up a bit with my usual go to, Greek yogurt. All wrapped up in a  doughy pita. I think this is the perfect go-to for summer lunch time or a picnic in the park. Enjoy!
