Before I share this Rotisserie Chicken Salad recipe with you, I want to give a quick shout out to the ladies behind The Recipe Redux…

I know for certain, I am 100% a better home cook (something I think EVERYONE can become) through your inspiration to experiment, be creative, and have FUN creating new recipes to try. Thank You!!!

I chose this Rainbow Rotisserie Chicken Salad for my last Recipe Redux Post because it embodies the recipes YOU all like to eat (me too!)-Easy, Nourishing, DELICIOUS!

If you’re with me on this one, you’ll definitely want to add this Rotisserie Chicken Salad to your easy recipe collection. It’s one you’ll be making time and time again, especially when you want to get a healthy meal on the table, lickety split!

How to Make Rainbow Rotisserie Chicken Salad (Did I mention it’s SO Easy?!)

  1. Start with leftover chicken. This can be rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken breasts.
  2. Gather your greens. I used romaine lettuce, but this rotisserie chicken salad would be fabulous with any variety of leafy greens (i.e. arugula, baby spinach, chopped kale, Swiss chard…)
  3. Add the rainbow! Like purple cabbage, orange carrots, red tomatoes, & creamy green avocado. Or use whatever veggies you have on hand. The more, the crunchier!
  4. Sprinkle on some bling! I added my all-time favorite salad topper-pine nuts. You choose whatever YOU like-slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, sunflower seeds…
  5. Top it off with dressing. This rotisserie chicken salad goes perfectly with Maple Dijon Low FODMAP Salad Dressing, but you can drizzle on whatever you like.

About this Low FODMAP Salad Dressing…

While I typically make my own salad dressings (like this Easy Homemade Vinaigrette), I decided to use Fody Low FODMAP Maple Dijon Salad Dressing for this Rotisserie Chicken Salad, to make it SUPER quick and easy.

I like the Fody dressing because it has ingredients I recognize and cook with at home, including extra virgin olive oil, dijon mustard powder, and organic herbs. Bonus, it’s pretty darn tasty too!

And, if you’re not into maple dijon dressing, but still want a low FODMAp option, Fody has other low FODMAP salad dressings to choose from, including Caesar, Garden Herb, and French.

Make this Rotisserie Chicken Salad with Avocado and Honey Mustard Dressing for a quick, easy, and nourishing lunch or dinner.

What to serve with this Rotisserie Chicken Salad…

This rotisserie chicken salad is filling {and nourishing} enough to eat on it’s own, but if you want to complete your meal, serve it with fresh strawberries and your favorite gluten-free rolls. Like my family’s all-time favorite “Best Ever Rolls” aka Pao de Quejo or Brazillian Cheese Puffs.

I promise you, they are well worth the few extra minutes it takes to make them!

Oh, and if you live with a furry four legged friend, consider yourself forewarned that the tantalizing smell of juicy rotisserie chicken will lure him/her to your salad, so be sure and save a piece {or two} of chicken to share 🙂

  1. Your dog is adorabl and you chose the perfect name for this colorful salad. I am such a salad lover, I must give this a try. It looks and sounds delicious!

  2. That is my favorite Annie’s dressing! I’ve been in a salad rut lately and I think it resulted from not having a good salad dressing (homemade or not) around to spruce things up a bit. Now I may actually feel like a salad… 😉

    1. Thanks Liz! I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of the dressing, as so many bottled dressings, healthy or not, don’t appeal to me. It’s good to have something on hand that’s not only on the healthier side, but that also tastes good too 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Julie and glad you concur with my choice of salad dressing! I’m sure you’ve read a lot of salad dressing labels to know that there aren’t too many that pass muster 🙂

  3. So simple EA but so elegant at the same time! As usual, that photo makes me want to eat my computer screen. I’d happily join your family any night of the week when you whip this up! I too RARELY buy dressings, but good to know that’s an option you enjoy and approve of. Thanks for doing the dirty work for us!
