I’ve been on a chicken salad kick lately. I must admit, I have never really had chicken salad until now. Was searching for low sodium recipes and chicken salad was one of those recipes that had a low amount of sodium. I’ve been trying to watch my s odium levels too, and it is Soooooo freaking hard too because there’s sodium in everything. For breakfast, I’ll have a greek yogurt with some granola on top, and for a snack I’ll have 6 Triscuit crackers with some string cheese. Sometimes I’ll eat dried fruit, love cranberries!
This chicken salad has almonds, grapes, dried cranberries, and apples in it and it is just delicious! I use light mayo for my chicken salad and it’s pretty low calorie and very filling. I could eat this with out any bread!
2 cooked chicken breasts, diced or shredded
1 cup of grapes
1/2 cup of cranberries
1/4 cup of slivered almonds
1/3 cup of light mayo
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
In a bowl add the cooked chicken, apple, grapes, almonds, cranberries, salt and pepper, and garlic powder. Mix everything together and serve over lettuce or make a sandwich with it.
