Ranch Chicken Salad Sandwich

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 have linked this recipe to Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum and Food on Fridays. Come check out all of the fabulous recipes that have been posted.
