Tender pieces of chicken surrounded by healthy flavorful vegetables like cucumber, avocado, red bell pepper topped with feta and a light sweet and tangy honey mustard dressing.

Inspiration for this healthy salad

The inspiration for this chicken salad came when I visit my parents in Venice, Florida. We like to dine at T.J. Carney’s . One of my favorite menu items is their “Spa Wrap.” I love it so much that I decided to turn it into a healthy salad.

How should I cook the chicken?

My favorite way to cook the chicken for this recipe is to grill the chicken. I grill chicken breasts/thighs ahead of time, chop them up and put them into vacuum sealed bags (paid link) and freeze them into 1-2 c. portions. Whenever I need cooked chicken, I just go to my freezer. You can also cook the chicken in the Instant Pot. For delicious moist chicken, try this recipe.

Try it as a wrap!

It’s delicious in a tortilla. Feel free to make it into a wrap, just be sure and add the points/calories if you’re counting. Serve the honey mustard dressing as a sauce in a small condiment cup on the side for dipping!

How to make it ahead of time

To make this salad ahead of time, have everything ready to go. Just be sure and add the dressing right before you serve it. If you want to make it a day ahead, just cut everything all up, keep it separate until the day of and put it together at the last minute.

How to easily make it for a larger crowd

You can easily adapt this salad to accomodate more people. For each person, use 1 oz cooked chicken, 1 c. spring mix, 1 c. spinach, 1/4 c. arugula and 1/4 c. vegetables, 2 T. avocado, 1 T. feta and 1 T. dressing.
