Chicken is the perfect ingredient for any type of salad. A chicken salad can be eaten at any time of year and can be served warm or cold depending on the other ingredients. The chicken can be marinated for extra flavour, grilled or roasted and served plain, so that the other ingredients can speak for themselves and provide the added kick.

Some of the flavours that you can combine with chicken include lemon, ginger, chilli, tarragon or garlic. By adding strong flavours to the chicken meat, the rest of the salad can easily consist of solely simple salad ingredients such as lettuce, tomato, spinach or avocado.

For healthy options, chicken is the perfect ingredient, as it is low in fat, contains fewer calories that other meats and less saturated fat. Although it combines well with mayonnaise, chicken goes just as well with healthier option dressings such as oil and vinegar, lemon juice and sesame oil, orange juice and olive oil and soy sauce and sunflower oil. The list of combinations for chicken is endless!
