Family classic chicken salad revamped
The flavor of this almost classic chicken salad comes from fresh herbs, and if they are from your garden even better! I am personally not a fan of grapes or nuts in my chicken salad but I do love a good crunch! The celery gives this almost classic chicken salad a good crunch and the peppers add a touch of sweetness with more crunch and added vitamins.
I always aim for an equal or more veggies to protein ratio. It is a great way to make sure we are incorporating veggies with every meal and also a great way to stretch a smaller portion of protein out making it budget-friendly.
Enjoy this chicken salad on bread, pitas, wraps or as a dip with your favorite crackers! It can also be low carb and served with veggies!
