Refreshing Nutritious Chicken Salad


Written By Gracie 

This is such a nutritious salad that is great for the slightly warmer evenings as it’s very refreshing. The salad is carb free, low GI, gluten-free, high in protein and essential fats and full of vital vitamins and minerals. It also tastes delicious and is very light so you feel nicely full once you have finished it.
