Avocado Goddess Chicken Salad Sandwich

Everyone needs a reliable and delicious chicken salad sandwich, and this is it! Avocado, fresh herbs, crunchy celery and onions, and other fresh ingredients make this salad unique, served best on a whole grain or seeded bread with simple vegetable toppings like cucumbers, lettuce, and carrots.

Avocado Goddess Chicken Salad Sandwich

Have you ever had a chicken salad sandwich at a spa restaurant? It’s herby, fresh, crunchy, and zesty? Well, this tastes exactly like that! It’s so refreshing and flavorful, it will leave you wanting to come back to the restaurant – but luckily, that restaurant will be your kitchen this time!

Avocado Goddess Chicken Salad Sandwich

To make this chicken salad, the key ingredients are the various herbs, mashed avocado, and some Greek yogurt. It’s protein packed, crunchy thanks to some celery and onions, and absolutely a satisfying sandwich. Sometimes I’m hesitant to eat sandwiches for lunch, because I feel like I’m not “getting enough in,” but this one is jam packed with healthy fats, protein, veggies, and antioxidant rich herbs.

You can serve this chicken salad in lettuce wraps, with crackers, on a bed of greens, or in a sandwich, like I have it pictured here. I’ve made the salad with shaved carrots (or julienned!), greens, and spiralized cucumber ribbons. I love spiralizing cucumbers for sandwiches, because the consistency is better and it makes the whole sandwich more hearty.

Despite the chicken salad being made with avocado, it saved well in the refrigerator for 3 days without browning, thanks to the lemon juice which helps ‘preserve’ the avocado.

No matter how you make this – you’re going to love it and it will be come an instant favorite!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Avocado Goddess Chicken Salad Sandwich

Ingredients

  • For the dressing:
  • 1 ripe Haas avocado halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh tarragon leaves
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove crushed
  • salt and pepper
  • For the chicken salad:
  • 3 cups diced or shredded cold rotisserie chicken
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 small white or red onion chopped
  • 1 4 oz jar diced pimiento peppers drained
  • For the sandwich:
  • 8 pieces of whole wheat bread I love Dave’s Killer
  • 1 English seedless cucumber
  • lettuce of choice
  • 2 carrots peeled, julienned

Instructions

  • Place all of the ingredients for the dressing in a food processor and pulse until creamy. Taste and adjust, if needed. Transfer to the bottom of a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the chicken, celery, onion, and pimientos into the bowl with the dressing and toss well to combine.
  • Toast the bread.
  • While the bread toasts, spiralize the cucumber on Blade A, using very light pressure, so you get thin cucumber ribbons. Trim and set aside.
  • Build the sandwiches using the chicken salad, lettuce, spiralized cucumbers, and carrots. Serve.
  • Alternately, build as bowls: ditch the bread and divide the cucumber noodles, salad, and carrots into bowls and top with equal portions of chicken salad.

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
