How to serve this chicken salad

Serve it in lettuce cups or a wrap of your choice

This chicken salad would be great served inside romaine lettuce or butter lettuce cups!

Serve over a bed of lettuce

All you need is a couple of cups of lettuce and you have a delicious salad complete with protein from the chicken, carbs, and veggies from the grapes and celery, and fat from the dressing. So easy!

Serve it by itself with a side

I think this chicken salad would be great paired with something like plantain chips on the side to round it all out.

 

The Ingredients for the no mayo chicken salad
