I didn't think my son would ever eat chicken salad, but I found a way to make it that he loves. As I have said before, he will eat ranch dressing on just about anything. I decided to make some chicken salad using the homemade healthy and clean ranch dressing recipe I tried a couple weeks ago. Total success!
This makes a lot of chicken salad so you may want to half it. You will also have some ranch dressing left over to use elsewhere.
4 small chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
3 ribs of celery, chopped
2 cups of grapes, cut in half
1/2 cup of pecans, chopped
2 cups of ranch dressing (recipe below)
Mix all ingredients until well combined.
Healthy and Clean Ranch Dressing
1 1/2 cups of low fat buttermilk
3/4 cup of plain nonfat greek style yogurt
1 1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried dill
2 1/2 tsp dried parsley
2 1/2 tsp dried chives
2 1/2 tsp salt

I am a kindergarten teacher living in Kansas, though my heart will always be in Texas. I spend my "extra" time cooking, baking, reading, planning for my classroom and spending time with my son and husband. My newest obsession is Zumba. I have been teaching since October and absolutely LOVE it!!! My twelve-year-old son, Cameron loves to cook with me and has considered being a chef when he grows up. We spend a lot of quality time together in our teeny-tiny kitchen.
