Chicken Salad takes on a new perspective when served in a cabbage leaf. Fresh tasting and low carb, it’s a perfect meal to add to the rotation.

Chicken Salad with Napa Cabbage

I have always been a big fan of salads and sandwiches. Put them together and … wow!

Last summer and then last month when I was counting calories and doing a Whole30, respectively, I found that serving the protein in a lettuce of cabbage leaf was a refreshing alternative to bread, tortillas, or rolls. I’ve served tacos, fajitas, and sandwich fillings in a leaf many a time to find that it tastes great and I don’t miss the bread.

This easy to assemble meal is the perfect addition to your lunch or light dinner rotation. Chicken salad, chock full of veggies and nuts, is served in cabbage leaves instead of bread, making it low-carb, yet filling meal. It’s also perfect to serve for family or guests who are going gluten-free.

  1. This certainly proves that you don’t have to give up eating good food when you go on a diet. I don’t really understand why some people think they have to stick to bland foods when trying to lose weight. Thanks for sharing this.

    I agree with Joshua. So many people say they feel sorry for me and my family and that they wouldn’t be able to “deprive” themselves and their kids. If being healthier than we’ve ever been and eating delicious food every day is considered “deprived”, then I certainly love it! My husband loves every single meal I feed him and a lot of recipes come from your blog and cookbook, so thank you!!

      @Liz, Aww, thanks for the kind words.

      It really is true that if you focus on what you can have, it can be very tasty.

    Do you make your own mayo or can you recommend a Whole 30 compliant mayo? Reading your blog has inspired my daughter and me to do this. We’re excited to feel so healthy.

    I also add a dash of tarragon to my chicken salad sandwiches. I find it adds such a nice flavour to the chicken and goes well with the apple. 🙂
