Chicken salad is one of my favorite sandwiches. It’s simple, flavorful and hearty. It’s also easy to customize and one of my favorite dishes to health-ify.
Most weeks I will bake off some chicken to have on hand during the week. When I know I won’t have a lot of time to cook I just grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Both are great uses in chicken salad. I had some chicken in the fridge that needed to be used. I also had Tessemae’s Zesty Ranch dressing that I’ve been dying to try and use. I thought it would be the perfect zip in some chicken salad.
Greek yogurt is a great substitute for mayo, but doesn’t have a ton of flavor. Enter avocado. The avocado and greek yogurt mixed together in this recipe gives both flavor and that creamy texture we know and love. Adding in the Zesty Ranch dressing adds the right amount of the herby flavor that comes from ranch.
This recipe is so quick and easy to whip up. Perfect for when your doing meal preps for the week or just need a quick lunch. I topped this chicken salad on top of toasted whole wheat bread and a few kale leaves, but it would also be great on top of a simple salad. Enjoy!
