Chicken & White Bean Salad

Your rating: None Average: 4 (190 votes)

Zucchini and celery give this chicken-and-bean salad a nice crunch. We like serving it over a bed of slightly bitter escarole and radicchio, but any type of salad greens will work. Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell.

Easy, healthy, and fast lunch

I made this for lunch the other day. Instead of eating it over greens, I ate it in a pita. It was absolutely delicious.

delicious, easy to make, had most of the ingredients in the house, healthy
Delicious and filling!

I just had this for lunch and it was amazing! I subbed red and yellow bell pepper for the celery because it's what I had on hand. I also used spring mix for the lettuce. Only tossed a cup of the dressing with the bean and chicken mixture because another reviewer said it was overwhelming, and I generally like less dressing. This was nice because it let me control the amount. I love how many variations are possible and also that I can make the mixture on Sunday and then put it on greens all week long. This will make for super easy lunches!

Can make most ahead, protein makes it filling, easy, delicious,
Really worthwhile!

This was a great recipe! I left out the raw zucchini, as I'm not fond of it. I used arugula and radicchio as the greens. I also made homemade Fresh Herbal Vinaigrette as the dressing. A good dressing can make or break a salad. Homemade is usually best. This recipe is a keeper!

high protein
Served it at Ladies Luncheon

I substituted chopped ham for 1/3 of the chicken and used Paul Newman's Italian dressing with a clove of garlic, and people did like it. One person asked for the recipe.
