Tzatziki Chicken Salad is an all time favorite, healthy, low-fat Chicken Salad made quickly and easily. Serve with the Lavash Crackers (recipe link included in post) or with wholewheat bread for a light, yet filling lunch or light dinner.
There is nothing better than a quick salad for lunch. I often made a bowl of salad the night before when I used to work full time.
And if there was a salad dressing which might have made the salad ingredients go soggy, I always included the dressing separately in a smaller *tiny really!) bowl. And stacked it on top of my salad until such time I was ready to have lunch.
This Tzatziki Chicken Salad is even better as everything gets mixed together and it stays good for a couple of days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
I usually make this salad when we have had Chicken the night before as it is a great way to use any leftover Chicken.
You can of course also pick up a rotisserie chicken and use that instead ! Huge time saver, especially if you thought of making this Chicken salad at the last minute.
Served with the Lavash Crackers this is a perfect early light dinner for us. Not rich at all, but filling enough.
