While I am all for deli-style chicken salad sandwiches on thick slices of white bread, sometimes the part of my brain that reminds me I need to be eating a little bit healthier pipes up and insists that some of my favourite dishes can be made with health in mind. It turns out, this recipe for Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad is as yummy as the original and while I'm going to show you how I make Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps I also have to tell you that I'll eat this stuff out of a bowl on it's own, over rice or spread on toast. It's that yummy!
Simply, toss your chicken, veggies, and cilantro in a bowl.
Add the Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, avocado and mix.
Spoon onto lettuce leaves topped with shredded cabbage, roll and enjoy!
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (Use this super-easy method!)
1 rib celery, chopped
4 slices cucumber, chopped
1-2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 avocado, peeled, pit removed, sliced and tossed in 1/2 tsp lemon or lime juice if desired (the bottled kind is fine)
6 lettuce leaves suitable for wraps
1 cup shredded cabbage (I buy the pre-packaged coleslaw mix)
In bowl, add chicken, celery, cucumber, and cilantro.
Mix in Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, and avocado until combined.
Place equal amounts of cabbage onto each lettuce leaf and top with chicken salad.
Roll and enjoy!
