Ingredients

  • 4 ounces pre-cooked chicken breast chopped
  • 1/4 cup Champagne grapes
  • 1/4 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped purple cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt or lactose free if needed for Low FODMAP
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise {I like Sir Kensingtons}
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1/2 yellow summer squash

Instructions

  • Make the chicken salad by combining the chopped chicken, grapes, pecans, yogurt, mayonnaise, and rosemary in a medium mixing bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Slice zucchini and summer squash in to ~1/4 inch rounds-you will have ~20 rounds or "chips". Place squash chips on a serving dish and top with chicken salad. Serve immediately, or store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Notes

Ingredient Swaps

  • If you can't find Champagne grapes, chopped red or green grapes will work well too.
  • Grapes not in season? Try chopped apples or mango.
  • Use any favorite nuts or seeds in place of pecans if desired.
  • Rosemary works well with this recipe, but feel free to experiment with other herbs-both fresh or dried.

Serving Suggestions

  • No zucchini chips? This low carb chicken salad tastes delicious on it's own.
  • Serve it on bread for a sandwich.
  • Enjoy it wrapped in lettuce leaves for another low carb option.
