Chicken salad is a great dish. Whether it’s put between two toasted pieces of bread, used as a dip on some chips or stealing the show all on its own – it’s a delicious choice, especially for a quick lunchtime meal. A freshly made light chicken salad typically doesn’t have many downfalls or flaws, but the one that might come up is that it might have trouble fitting into a healthy diet.
Fortunately, that’s no longer true due to this wonderful light chicken salad recipe having absolutely no mayo. However, the lack of mayo in this dish doesn’t take away from the taste or creaminess that is so important to a good chicken salad – so give it a try!
