Probably one of the most frequent questions I receive is what to have for lunch. Lunch can be challenging because we usually want something that is quick and easy, especially if we are trying to take something to have at work. Typically I have a basic salad – lettuce, cheese, carrots, raisins, sliced almonds, and chicken or tuna with oil & vinegar. It’s fine but it gets a little boring. If I don’t have salad I either soup or leftovers from dinner the night before. Sometimes I cobble together, fruit, cheese, carrots and nuts – for something quick.
Today I came up with this salad – it’s little something different from what I usually have, and I thought it was pretty good. This is perfect if you have a little bit of left over chicken that is not enough for a complete meal.
The amount of ingredients will depend on how big of a salad, or how many salads you are making. Here is what I used for what is shown in the picture above:
1/4 – 1/2 cup cooked chicken breast
1/2 apple – chopped
1 celery stalk – chopped
2 tbsp chopped walnuts
7 – 8 grapes – sliced in half
2 tbsp shredded carrots
2 tbsp shredded cheese
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp SCD Mayo
1 – 2 cups romaine lettuce
- Combine chicken, apple, walnuts, grapes, carrots, cheese, cabbage, and salt & pepper in a bowl
- Add mayo
- Mix until mayo is combined with all the ingredients
- Place lettuce on a plate
- Place apple-chicken mixture on top of lettuce
