  1. This just looks so fresh and delicious – I would never suspect that it fit into all of those special needs, but I love that it does!

  2. Love it. Thanks Robyn. Have a Fun Day!

  3. There is nothing better! So healthy and yummy!

  4. Looks delicious. How do you cook your chicken in prep for the chicken salad?

  5. This also fits into my category which is (very) low sodium. Thanks!

  6. This is just what I need today! So light and fresh.

  7. I’ve always made this with shredded chicken and served on a croissant. It’s one of our favorites!

  8. This is the 2nd time I’ve made this but with shrimp instead of chicken. When we were going home after wine tasting, my hubby said he wanted the salad exactly howI made it last time (5days-ago). Wow, he really likes your recipes (with my own touch, we hadnochicken)! Keep ‘me coming.

  9. Light, fresh and tasty: the perfect combo! Nothing beats a well made salad. Thanks for the healthy post!

  10. I would very much like to have a BIG bowl of this salad for breakfast right now. It looks so yummy.

  11. Excellent spinoff for chicken salad. Very easy to prepare. My only minor deviation was to replace the chopped onion with chopped green onion. I served this on crunchy chopped romaine lettuce that was a visual and tasteful masterpiece. Warm garlic bread on the side completed the meal … and, of course, a couple glasses of pinot grigio.

  12. When I was a kid, my Mom’s friend made Avocado and egg salad. . It was done just like egg salad but had Avocado in it. I just remember it being delicious and have not had Avocado since. Do you have any recipe for this. Just my Husband and I now so I do not want a recipe for a big portion. My husband never ate Avocado so I am at least hoping he will eat it.

  13. I made this today for lunch. My daughters invited a friend over so all of their children could swim. I made the “mommas” this salad for their lunch. They loved it!! I served the tomatoes on the side in case someone wasn’t a tomato fan. I had tortillas for them to make a wrap, it was so good! I was afraid I would have to add something to this for a little moisture, but I didn’t it was perfect!. I also made your cucumber tomato salad. They thought they were getting the royal treatment to enjoy these salads while the kids ate their chicken nuggets!

    • How sweet of you to have a special lunch for your sweet Momma friends! I know they were so thrilled at your wonderful hospitality! I’m so glad everyone enjoyed the salads. They are definitely favorites here as well! xo
