Green chicken salad

A lettuce-free salad!


Don’t be put off by all the raw vegetables in here – they really go well together and it is good to realise that not all salads have to be about tomatoes and lettuce.

  • 1 breast of chicken, grilled and sliced or use any leftover chicken you might have from a roast
  • ⅓ of a head of broccoli
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 2 spring onions or scallions

  • 1 teaspoon mixed fresh thyme and rosemary, well chopped
  • 1 dessertspoon of low-fat French dressing

  3. Break the broccoli into bite size florets and add to the bowl with the sliced celery, chopped apple and finely sliced spring onions or scallions
