    Errrrin's Note:

    This is a super healthy salad, chicken, veggies and a yummy pesto dressing. It reminds me of pasta salad because of the dressing but I make it without pasta. You could definitely add it, I'd just increase the dressing slightly if you do. It came from a combination of different recipes. I love substituting greek yogurt for things like mayo, which was part of my idea here. All frozen veggies could be replaced with canned... sometimes I use asparagus instead of grean beans. Also, if you prefer less of a tangy dressing you can add a little splenda/stevia/sweetener of your preference and/or decrease the lemon.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    large s ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut pre-cooked chicken into 1" cubes and set aside.
    2. 2
      Prepare vegetables: Thinly slice green onion. Drain and quarter artichoke hearts. Chop cherry tomatos in half. Thaw peas and green beans, I recommend cutting the green beans into approx 1" lengths. Drain all the veggies as well as possible. Squeeze the extra moisture out with a paper towel if you like.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, mix together greek yogurt, pesto, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Mix in all of the vetgetables and chicken. Toss to coat.
    5. 5
      You can eat immediately but I think it tastes better after sitting in the fridge overnight. It's good on its own or served over lettuce or broccoli shreds.
