There’s nothing worse than a bland, dry salad and this recipe is far from those things! I season EVERYTHING and my creamy chicken salad is bursting with colour, texture and deliciousness!
Creamy salads tend to be quite high in calories but in this recipe, I cut down on the mayonnaise and replaced most of the creaminess with a lower in fat alternative, 5% fat greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt gave this salad some extra freshness and it is honestly my current go-to quick, healthy and filling meal!
Without further ado, here is the recipe:
CREAMY, HEALTHY CHICKEN SALAD
- Medium-sized cooked chicken breast
- Salad leaves of your choice
- 6 cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 medium-sized cucumber
- 1 spring onion
- 6 flat leaf parsley leaves
- 1 tsp light mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp 5% fat greek yogurt
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 avocado
Chop your vegetables, chicken breast and parsley into pieces and add to your salad bowl.
Mix your mayonnaise and greek yogurt in a bowl. Add the juice of half a lemon, garlic powder and salt. Pour over your salad ingredients.
Mix, add 1/2 a chopped avocado and enjoy!
