Creamy Honey Mustard Chopped Chicken & Veggie Salad

 I debated calling this salad “Chicken Sandwich Salad” but though it might sound confusing. Chicken salad sandwich, yes. Chicken sandwich salad, not so much.

Let me explain.

Like most kids I went to elementary school with, I use to have sandwiches packed in a brown bag, along with some fruit, a juice box and a couple of cookies or a  granola bar, to tote along with me to school for lunch. My favourite combination is mustard and mayo, along with whatever type of protein. I use to have ham or bologna as a kid, now I’m more of a chicken sandwich type of gal.

Actually, I’m not really a huge sandwich maker in general anymore as meal sized salads are more the norm coming out of my kitchen. So welcome to this Creamy Honey Mustard Chopped Chicken & Veggie Salad.

Instead of bread I’m using some hard core roughage. Cauliflower and broccoli, my friends. Those cruciferous little antioxidant powerhouse veggies. 🙂 Stinky, yes. Super good for you, also yes.

I like that these veggies pack a great crunch and really add some texture to this salad. I know it’s popular to mince cauliflower and broccoli up in the food processor, and I like that method also, but sometimes you really just don’t have the energy to lug out the appliances and to be honest, I’m a fan of both of these vegetables, so a rough chop was all I needed to prep the cauliflower and broccoli for my salad.

Adding chicken to this salad was a breeze, using leftover cold rotisserie chicken from our local grocery store that sells organic roasted chickens. So easy and what I consider ‘fast food’. 😉 Relive your childhood and get some great nutrients while your at it! Enjoy. 🙂
