Cilantro-Lime Chopped Chicken Salad

Salads get a bad rap. From bland and boring to flavorless and tired, salads are too often the spotlight of a #saddesklunch. We’re here to change that! This flavor-packed salad will add a much-needed zing to your lunch (or dinner!) that will have you dreaming of leftovers. 

We love this recipe because it’s loaded with protein (23g per serving!) thanks to pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. The lime juice adds the perfect kick of brightness to each bite and the cabbage provides a crunch that can’t be beaten. 


4Cups cooked chicken, shredded
16Cups cabbage, finely shredded
3Cups Shredded Carrot
2Bell peppers, thinly sliced
3/4Cup green onions, sliced (6-8 green onions)
3/4Cup cilantro, chopped
Zest of 2 Limes


1/3Cup lime juice (1-5 limes)
1/3Cup olive oil
1Tsp cumin
1/2Tsp salt, more to taste if desired
2Tsp honey
1Garlic clove, minced
Chili powder, if desired


  • Whisk together all the dressing ingredients.
  • In a very large bowl, toss all the salad ingredients together with the dressing.

  2. Hello there!
    I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    website? I’m getting sick and tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at options for another platform. I would be
    fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
