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


  • 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


  • 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.

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
