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!
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!
