Broccoli Slaw Salad with Chicken, Apple, and Pickle

Looking for a quick, easy-to-make, low-cal lunch?  When we were in Tucson (where we vacationed for a month), I discovered that Safeway carried broccoli slaw which we also have in Canada and which I’ve been using as the basis for a lunch salad.  This salad is as healthy as all get out, covers all the food groups except grains, and has a great, crunchy texture.

I’ll add a photo when I’m a little more settled.  (The photo is now added.  In this version, I didn’t have any chicken or turkey so I threw in a hard-boiled egg instead.  It’s okay, but I prefer the meats.) When we got home from Arizona three days ago, I discovered that my computer wasn’t working and that my hard drive was fried.    I’m sure you can envision the ensuing rigamarole.   In the meantime, get out the broccoli slaw…

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups of broccoli slaw
  • 2 ounces cooked chicken, cut up into small pieces (If I don’t have leftover chicken around, I use sliced chicken from the deli.)
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 1-2 sandwich saver pickle slices (I use dill with extra garlic (no sugar); these are only 4 calories per slice.)
  • 1 tbsp. low-cal mayonnaise
  • Salt to taste

Directions:  Mix together all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!
