Mum's Chicken Salad

Chistmas won't be Christmas without mum's chicken salad.
Ever since I knew K, this dish is a must for this festive season.
My mum-in-law would prepare a hugh portion of this dish a few days before Christmas.
As her children started arriving home, the first thing they look for would be this Tupperware of salad in the fridge.
When I said hugh it means a 5L tupperwareful!
It would be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just an in-between-meals-snack all through the holidays.
You guess it, nobody is allow to get hungry at any time.

Chicken Salad
1 chicken, boiled, deboned and shredded
500g macaroni, boiled and drained
3 apples, cored and diced
500g frozen mix vegetable, boiled and drained
