Green Goddess Chicken Salad


Enter the Green Goddess Chicken Salad! Tender chicken tossed together with plenty of fresh tomatoes, avocado, mixed greens, and the most deliciously addicting herby, creamy homemade dressing. This salad is simple to toss together, extra bright, super flavorful, delicious, and healthy too. It’s the perfect lunch or light dinner to serve any day of the week from now through summertime.

But first things first. Let’s talk about the green goddess dressing. This dressing is a gardener’s dream – herby and vibrant! With a food chopper, it is incredibly easy to put the dressing together. You can also use a blender or food processor instead. Besides, you can whip up the dressing ahead, and store it in an airtight container. It will keep well for up to 4 days in the fridge. For this salad, you can use any mixed greens you love most. For the toss-ins, I use my favorite juicy cherry tomatoes, along with silky avocado, and any kind of leftover cooked chicken. Now, toss everything together, and a flavorful dish is done. Enjoy!

To make the Green Goddess Chicken Salad, you will need the following ingredients:
