Lunch, Snack

Our go-to chicken salad recipe is flavourful, flexible and OH-SO delicious! The perfect mix of cubed chicken breast, crisp apples, sweet grapes, tart cranberries, crunchy celery, sunflower seeds, red onion and fresh herbs (dill or basil work best) – all tossed together with greek yogurt (or unsweetened coconut yogurt for all the dairy-free folks out there!)

Serve on a bed of lettuce, between two slices of potato millet bread/on a gluten-free bun or just have it on it’s own right from the spoon. This is so easy to make and is an excellent way to use up leftover chicken and/or fruits/veggies you have hanging out in your fridge!

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chicken (cooked and diced)
  • ¼ cup toasted sunflower seeds (or walnuts, slivered almonds or pecans)
  • ¼ cup diced cranberries (or raisins or omit)
  • ½ cup diced celery
  • 2-3 tablespoons red onion – finely chopped (or omitted)
  • ½ cup apple (we recommend green apple) – diced
  • 1/3 cup grapes (green or red, both work wonderfully) cut in half
  • 2-3 tablespoons of greek yogurt or unsweetened coconut yogurt (dairy-free)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh herbs to taste (fresh dill or basil work best here!)
