Healthy Chicken Salad

Healthy Chicken Salad

The beauty of a healthy chicken salad is its flexibility. You can add a variety of vegetables for crunch and fibre, fruit for a touch of sweetness, and nuts such as pecans for a bit of richness and texture. Seasonings can be adjusted to your taste, so you can create a salad that’s uniquely yours.


  • greek yoghurt (use fat free or low fat if you prefer)
  • cottage cheese (low fat for a healthier option)
  • choice of vegetables (such as celery, onions or bell peppers), chopped
  • pecans, toasted and chopped
  • choice of fruit (such as apples or grapes), diced
  • seasonings (salt, pepper and any other herbs or spices you like)
  • cooked chicken breast, shredded or diced

Method of preparation:

In a large bowl, mix equal parts Greek yogurt and cottage cheese until smooth.

Stir in the vegetables and fruit of your choice.

Add salt, pepper and any other seasonings to taste.

Gently fold in the cooked chicken until well combined.

Sprinkle with toasted pecans for a nice crunch.

Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavours to meld.

Enjoy your healthy chicken salad on a bed of greens, in a wrap or with wholegrain crackers.
