A healthy main dish salad
It’s not too often I come across a main dish that is low calorie and good, but the recipe I am sharing with you today is one of those rare ones! Last week I attended a luncheon with friends and my friend Sharon Hanson brought this chicken salad that was both healthy and very good! We had dinner rolls and a not so healthy dessert to round out our lunch.
I hope all you fathers out there had a good day yesterday and got some pampering!
Chicken Salad with Tomato and Cucumber:
1/2 cup sweet diced onion
2 medium diced English cucumbers or peeled regular cucumbers (you can remove the seeds)
2 cups diced seeded plum tomatoes
2 cups diced cooked chicken breasts
1/4 cup rough chopped cilantro
3 Tbsp olive oil
juice of two lemons
salt and pepper to taste
Toss together all ingredients except for the lemon juice, refrigerate. Just before serving, add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
