Citrus Chicken Salad

April 20, 2013

Citrus chicken salad could not be any simpler.  Cubes of chicken are combined with celery, red onion, and cilantro before being tossed with an Asian citrus dressing.  This light version of chicken salad has less mayonnaise compared to the traditional recipe.  You can serve your chicken salad on a bed of lettuce, in a pita, or simply between two pieces of sandwich bread.
