Chai Bliss Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chai Bliss Chicken Salad Sandwich

What is your favorite sandwich? My new favorite is my Chai Bliss Chicken Salad Sandwich. I’ve always loved a good chicken salad sandwich. I used to pick up an Arby’s chicken salad sandwich when ever I was out and about, running errands. Now that I’m gluten free, that’s no longer an option. This recipe is so easy, delicious and healthy that I don’t think I’ll ever miss the old chicken salad sandwich I used to buy there.

I used a 1/4 cup of mayo in this recipe. If you want to save even more calories you can substitute plain yogurt in it’s place. I’m not a calorie counting person. I figure if I’m eating pretty good 90% of the time a little something here and there isn’t going to hurt me.

The almonds I used in this recipe are divine all on there own. They’re called “Olomomo Chai Bliss Almonds,” and they are tasty little things. You can pick them up at your local natural food store in the snack section. I crushed them up and put them in my chai bliss chicken salad sandwich. If you can’t find them, use regular almonds and cardamom with a little cinnamon spice to add a nice chai flavor to your sandwich.

You can use any gluten free bread that you buy, or bake yourself. I listed “Three Bakers 7 Grain Bread” because I love the flavor and texture. Feel free to use whatever you have on hand. You can also use either grilled chicken, or canned chicken. I used canned chicken because it was quick and easy for me at the time, and I was hungry. I spread kefir cheese on my bread before adding the chicken salad. It tastes like cream cheese only healthier for you.  Enjoy!

Mango Tango Chicken Salad with Tropical Tahini Dressing

Mango Tango Chicken with Tropical Tahini Dressing

I’ve never been much of a green salad person. I mean really! How boring is a plain old green salad with the same cucumber and tomato. Yes you can dress it up with a different dressing. I’ll give you that. But all the best salads I’ve eaten have had one thing in common – uncommon ingredients. Foods you might not think of in a salad.

So when I spotted a jar of tahini on sale the other day at “The Crunchy Grocer” I brought it home and came up with this delightful tropical salad, “Mango Tango Chicken Salad with Tropical Tahini Dressing. That’s just so fun to say “Mango Tango Chicken Salad with Tropical Tahini Dressing”, I just had to say it again. I can just picture a mango doing the tango with the avocado while the blueberry waits impatiently for his turn to do a dance in this dish. They make such a cute couple, don’t you think?

The salad is very easy to prepare, so you can have it on the table in no time at all. If you’ve never tried tahini before, it makes a wonderful base for dressings. It’s packed full of protein and very healthy for you. A much better option than bottle dressings. While you’re grilling your chicken for your salad, throw all your ingredients for the dressing in a blender or food processor. Super easy!

Mango tango chicken salad with tropical tahini dressing also calls for “Bragg Organic Hawaiian Dressing” this adds a nice zing to your salad dressing but if you are unable to buy this you can substitute regular apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
