There’s no denying that this Dill Chicken Salad is easy to make and absolutely delicious.

This healthy chicken salad uses Greek yogurt to offset the heaviness of mayonnaise, honey to give it a mild sweet flavor, and grapes and celery to give it a perfect texture.

You can eat it as a snack or a meal, put it in a wrap or sandwich, eat it plain or even top a salad with it for some fantastic flavor! It’s the perfect guilt-free way to indulge in a delicious meal without sacrificing flavor. Did we mention it makes a great on-the-go meal or snack?

REAL-food ingredients

We absolutely love chicken salad and all of its flavor. While store-bought may taste great, most brands don’t use real food ingredients. Instead, they use refined white sugar, artificial flavoring, preservatives and mayo that’s a combination of vegetable oil and olive oil (who knows if the olive oil is even 100% pure?). Or, worse yet, they use refined oil and completely omit EVOO from the equation.

This recipe takes the guesswork out of knowing if your chicken salad is a healthy addition to your meal or nothing more than a real-food imposter.

Top tips for prepping ahead: (on your food prep day or the night before)

Food prep doesn’t need to be mega creative or time-consuming. Instead, it should be practical and something that simplifies healthy eating. This means that instead of spending all your time focusing on preparing just one meal, ask yourself, “What foods can I prep right now that will simplify my week?” 

  • Cook and cube your chicken
  • Chop your grapes and celery

How to keep your chicken salad cool outside

If you’re serving this dish at a summer picnic or party, you may be wondering how you can keep it cold. Simply add ice cubes to a larger bowl than the one you’re serving your chicken salad in and set your serving bowl on the bed of ice.

Low-carb ways to serve your chicken salad:

  • An open-faced sandwich with Bibb lettuce
  • In a grilled tortilla with your favorite cheese (ours is creamy Havarti) and fresh baby spinach
  • A romaine wrap topped with walnuts or Homemade Candied Nuts
  • On a bed of spinach topped with tomatoes, chopped raw shredded Brussels sprouts (for some added crunch) and any other toppings your heart desires
  • In a chicken salad and avocado stuffed pepper (simply cut and clean out pepper, add chicken salad and top with sliced avocado)
  • As a snack on a rice cake thin (Lundberg Family Farms Organic Thin Stackers Grain Cakes are a great option)
