Chicken Salad Comes in Many Guises

Similar to tuna salad, chicken salad can be many things – and we think this Low FODMAP Green Goddess Chicken Salad takes chicken salad to another level.

There is a world beyond mayonnaise!

Figuring out what to eat for a low FODMAP lunch can be daunting, but once you get a few tuna and chicken salads in your repertoire, you will never go hungry!

Start With The Dressing

This Green Goddess Chicken Salad is a little different than the chicken salad at the deli – it’s loaded with herbs and the tang of anchovy from a classic Low FODMAP Green Goddess Dressing, which can be made in such a way that we can enjoy it on the low FODMAP diet, using lactose-free dairy.

Go Lactose-Free

Our version uses a low FODMAP lactose-free version of “buttermilk”, with an alternative suggestion for a thicker dressing using lactose-free sour cream.

Dump & Mix

Once you have chicken cooked (or have picked up a low FODMAP rotisserie chicken) and the dressing made, this Low FODMAP Green Goddess Chicken Salad will come together quickly.

We like this as sandwich filling as well as a “salad”, maybe in a nest of lettuce.
