Cilantro lime chicken salad is loaded with fresh veggies, juicy grilled chicken, and a creamy cilantro dressing that makes for a filling and healthy salad. Making homemade dressing isn’t complicated, and the best part is that you control the sodium and adjust to your preference. I love making big salads, and mixing it up with whatever veggies or toppings I have on hand.
The whole family loved my Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad. The grilled chicken is from one of my earlier posts for Cilantro Lime Chicken. I’ve made this a salad before with this chicken, but what put it over the top was a quick and healthy Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing. The dressing was so good, we even used it on our tacos for leftovers the second night. Best of all its made with Greek Yogurt, so good protein and fat.
The kids loved the Chicken and the dressing too, they used it more as a dip and I gave them diced up avocado, cucumbers, and tomato as their salad. If you have picky eaters, this is a great way to introduce more veggies into their diet by having them bit sized and ready for dipping. Makes it fun for the kids to eat. I know this salad will be on rotation over the summer, especially with fresh corn being in season. This salad is great for meal prep too. Store all your toppings separately and assemble in the morning or pack into mason jars for the week. I don’t have much luck with storing avocado, but you could always bring one in your lunch bag and cut it up before lunch. Also be sure to store the dressing separate as well. Enjoy!
