Light Chicken Salad – Recipe
This is one of my favorite recipes for a couple of reasons.
First, it’s super versatile. There are so many different ways to serve this so it’s always delicious and never boring. Take a look at the Alternative Serving Suggestions below for ideas!
Second, it makes use of one of my best time-saving tips – batch cooking. I developed a Masterclass on this called
‘Batch Prep Bliss,’ where I shared my exact system for simplified healthy eating and saving hours in the kitchen each week. Check that out here!
I also love to use purple cabbage as a ‘wrap’ for tacos and a variety of salads like this. It’s visually appealing – a strong contrast to the typical bland and boring ‘health foods’ we think of when initially upgrading our diets. It is much easier to be excited for healthy food when it LOOKS GOOD!
Honestly, this is much prettier than any grain-based shell or wrap. Whether you’re trying to cut calories or just want to include more nutrients in your meals, cabbage is a great alternative to these.
The cabbage adds a nice crunch! It’s also much more sturdy than butter lettuce or green leaf lettuce, which are commonly used for these types of recipes.
Nutritionally, cabbage is also a great choice! It’s higher in dietary fiber (great for healthy digestion and helping our tummies feel fuller, longer) and vitamin C (immunity booster, heart disease fighter, healthy skin & metabolism supporter).
