Heirloom Tomato and Chicken Toss


This Heirloom Tomato and Chicken Toss is a really tasty way to use up leftover roast chicken. It’s really healthy too. I always choose really ripe heirloom tomatoes when I make this salad. I love heirloom tomatoes for their weird and wonderful shapes and flavors. I always try to pick up a variety of different colors too if possible. 

To make this salad couldn’t be easier – I whisk up a quick dressing of vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper. Then I mix it with chicken, tomatoes, onion, basil, chives, parsley, and thyme together in one of my favorite salad bowls. Hey presto – a delicious salad ready in only 10 minutes!

To make this version of Heirloom Tomato and Chicken Toss, you will need the following:

I personally cut back on the tomatoes and used sun dried ones.

Yaritza Hebrink

Parsley really stood out in the toss and overwhelmed the rest of the flavors.

Jazlynn Mhoon

Ceasars salad was my favourite go to chicken salad until I found out this recipe thank you so much for posting this

Alma Weynand

Easy as one, two, three. I have been bringing this toss for lunch to work now almost every time we have some chicken leftovers lol

Pyper Albakri

A hearty salad that is delicious although I am not a big fan of munching on tomatoes and chicken only so ill be sticking to the tangerine toss.

Melinda Heeg

Tasty heirloom chicken toss and easy to make thanks for sharing will be making it again.

Eisley Bismark

Enjoyed the taste though I'm going to try making it with beef instead of chicken the second time around so it'll grip the flavors more.

Pamela Macgowan

Love the flavor in this meal though it couldve used a bit more salt.

Celia Strommen

I am a big fan of healthy food and this has topped the chart although do hold back on the sugar as it is not nescessary for the flavor of the dish and will make it healthier!

Arely Baab

This is perfect to make even if you dont have any leftover chicken, you can simply buy some chicken and fry / boil it to prepare the salad as a side dish to your main course.

Paula Vavra

Really easy to make, literally just grab the ingredients and mix them together, going to have to make this any time we have some left over meat.

Raylynn Hoffstadt

The Salad itself is good but the dressing for it was relatively weak i recommend adding more spices

Nadine Macnally

Perfect with a side of cheesy garlic bread, totally recommend it.

Sandra Koechner

What an excellent salad, doesnt leave a large mess behind and is very tasty, definitely my favourite now.
