Dill Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This recipe will change your life…no kidding! It is amazing! At first I was a little hesitate when the title started with dill but, it doesn’t over power it at all and gives it just the right amount of surprise that your typical chicken salad doesn’t have. Out of all the recipes I’ve posted this is a MUST to try! I promise you will not be disappointed. I ate this for lunch and dinner for 3 straight days, that’s saying something (I HATE to eat the same thing twice). Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups shredded, cooked chicken breast (I grilled mine on the Panini Press)
1 cup grapes, sliced into halves (I used red)
1/2 cup chopped cashews
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 Tbsp chopped green onion
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise (I used half light mayo and half plain Greek yogurt)
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste*

Green leaf lettuce, for serving (optional)

 

Directions:

In a small mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, dill, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.  Set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, toss together chicken, grapes, cashews, celery, green onion and Parmesan. Pour dressing over chicken mixture and toss mixture until well coated. Serve on a bed of lettuce (if desired) on sliced whole wheat bread, or whole wheat tortilla. I also dipped Special K crackers in it for a snack 😉

My favorite thing to do is to wake up early and start the day off with a good sweat. There's nothing more exciting then trying and new workout. I love to create new workouts to help people get fit. View all posts by fitsgreaterthanskinny
