Have chicken left over from last night’s dinner? Turn it into today’s healthy lunch with a light chicken salad, eaten as is or tucked into a pita for a quick grab-and-go sandwich. Crunchy celery, diced apples and sweet, cool grapes create burst-in-your-mouth texture and gourmet flavor, while dairy-free mayo keeps the fat content low. iStock_000015565962XSmallSimple Gourmet Chicken Salad
