This healthy asparagus chicken salad recipe is right up there with my favorite healthy, high protein salads as a main meal in the evening or as a healthy lunch to take to work. With fresh radishes, tasty chicken, crunchy asparagus and a lemon, garlic and oregano dressing drizzled on top, this salad recipe packs a delightful crunch with every bite.
Salads that are more than just lettuce are so much better for you and tastier! The combination of the lemon and garlic dressing, the chicken, the asparagus and mixed leaf salad delivers so much flavor.
Salads are a quick and healthy way to get in lots of veggies, and if you are a “salad dodger” (somebody that doesn’t like salads) you can add a tasty dressing to make it taste so so much better. Seriously, Luke wouldn’t eat salads until he met me. It’s all in the dressing.
This salad features our tasty homemade lemon garlic and oregano dressing that’s light on the pallet and is low in calories. Asparagus delivers a great addition of fiber which will help you feel fuller along with many other nutrients such as Vitamin A, C, and K.
