Healthy Chicken Salad with No Mayo
Avocado chicken salad is an excellent go-to lunch option. It can be made with leftover cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken, and just includes a quick mashup of dressing.
You can pile it high between slices of whole grain bread or serve it low carb as lettuce wraps.
It’s incredibly easy to make and it’s so supremely good it could even pass as a refreshing simple dinner.
The flavor of this version is almost like guacamole met chicken salad and it will leave you craving it time and time again! It’s so good you would be happy to eat it plain on it’s own no bread required.
- A simple swap for some textural variation, that contrasting satisfying crunch is to use celery in place of tomatoes.
- You could garnish this option with sliced almonds, sesame seeds or pumpkin seeds for a light layer of nutty flavor and a fine, flaky crunch.
- For some indulgence serve with crumbled bacon atop.
- If it’s grilling season try this with chopped grilled chicken in place of shredded chicken for a hint of charred smoky flavor.
