Check out my healthy and creative twist on chicken salad. My Asian Chicken Salad Cucumber Bites are easy to make and packed with flavor!
I love chicken salad. It’s easy to prepare and makes a delicious party appetizer or lunch plus the flavor options when making chicken salad are endless. Some people prefer a sweet chicken salad, some more savory. I may be bias, but my favorite is my balsamic chicken salad. (Make sure to click on the link for the recipe!)
This spring, I wanted to come up with another healthy, simple and delicious chicken salad recipe since we always seem to have cooked chicken ready to be mixed into some delicious creation. My Asian Chicken Salad Cucumber Bites are just that. I made a fun swap and traded mayo for peanut butter because it lends the same creaminess as mayo but offers more of an Asian flavor. I also added a bag of premixed kale, cabbage, and carrot salad to boost the nutrition. Buying a bag of pre-cut veggies saves time and can also save you money if it keeps you from throwing away excess of each individual ingredient. Finally, place the chicken salad on the cucumber rounds instead of bread or crackers to cut down on calories and sneak in more veggies.
This Asian Chicken Salad recipe is also delicious in lettuce wraps or celery stalks. This no-mayo chicken salad is sure to be a crowd favorite.
