Chicken Salad

Spring is coming! During the spring months, I start eating more and more salads. These take the place of heartier winter meals, and are very nutritious. Ideally organic products would used, providing optimal health benefits, but this is not always possible.

Now that spring is on its’ way, you may decide to start planning an organic garden to lessen the cost of ingredients. There is nothing quite like going outside to pick most of the ingredients for your salad.


1 cup chopped, pre-cooked chicken

2 cups shredded lettuce

1 large cucumber, sliced

2 carrots, shredded

1 cup sprouts, such as alfalfa

  1. Wash all of the vegetables.
  2. Place everything into a large bowl and toss.


  • Grow your own sprouts to save money.
  • Use organic products whenever possible. Save money by growing vegetables yourself.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with sandwiches or soup.
