This is a slightly unusual salad as it doesn’t have any lettuce. For this reason it is usually more filling than the lettuce based kind. Don’t be put off by all the raw vegetables in here – they really go well together and it is good to realise that not all salads have to be about tomatoes and lettuce.
This salad is high in fibre full of crunch and very refreshing. Remember, if you adjust the ingredients or add a source of starchy carbohydrates e.g. either wholegrain bread or some boiled potatoes, remember these will need to be factored in and nutritional information below will change.
- 1 breast of chicken, grilled and sliced or use any leftover chicken you might have from a roast
- 1 head of broccoli
- 2 sticks of celery
- 2 spring onions or scallions
- 1 green apple, preferable Granny Smith’s

- Get a large salad bowl and add the chopped chicken
