Low Carb Cilantro Chicken Salad

Who's Hungry!? This is a great post work out lunch filled with healthy fats, lots of protein and leafy greens. Took me 10 minutes to prepare, requires no cooking, and it came from all stuff I already had in the kitchen.


1/2 cup Perdue "short cuts" fully cooked Chicken Breast

1/3 cup cilantro

1/3 cup diced green onion

1/2 of small yellow onion, thinly sliced (use less or more to taste)

1 cup of Escarole (or greens of choice)

1/3 cup black beans

1/2 an avocado

Jalapeño to taste (optional)


1/4 cup plain 2% Greek Yogurt

juice of one fresh lime


Slice your Cilantro, green onion, yellow onion and leafy greens and put in salad bowl. Dice cooked chicken and add it to the mix. Slice avocado and coat with lime juice and add to bowl. Add cooked black beans and a few slices of jalapeño if you want an extra kick.

In a small bowl add combine your Greek yogurt and fresh lime juice and mix. Once dressing is combined, add to the salad and toss.

If you want to add a little crunch to your salad crush up a few corn tortilla chips and throw them in!
