chicken salad


  • 3/4 c fat-free sour cream
  • 3 scallions (green onions), minced
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped parsley (I really don’t like the flavor of parsley, so I substituted with cilantro)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 c grapes
  • 1/2 c cashews
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 3 c shredded chicken
  • 8 large lettuce leaves


  • In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, scallions, parsley (cilantro), lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss well to blend. Add the grapes, cashews, chicken and toss to coat. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves.

*This recipe is from the South Beach Diet Cookbook. It would be phase 1, except that I added grapes and cashews because it needed a little something more…since we are not doing South Beach. However, if you are a South Beach Dieter, it is definitely a great phase 1 recipe.
