This healthy high-protein, low-carb salad is a great option for your weekly meal prep. Tender chicken breasts, crunchy broccoli and celery are combined with blue cheese dressing which is so creamy that it can even be used as a dip. It's as simple as that!

Recipe Tips

This recipe uses broccoli and celery although other options will work just fine. Try steamed green beans, cauliflower or even some shredded cabbage or kohlrabi.

You can use poached chicken breasts or leftover rotisserie chicken shredded into pieces. If using raw chicken, you’ll need about 800 g (1.76 lbs) of raw chicken breasts to get about 600 g (1.3 lbs) of cooked chicken.

Travel friendly tip: Use mason jars to assemble your salad. Start by adding the dressing, followed by diced or shredded chicken, and finally add the chopped celery and broccoli. When ready to serve, simply tip into a serving bowl!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This was absolutely delicious, and I am not a huge fan of broccoli…but this was good. I made it with normal broccoli and Gorgonzola cheese and it was so creamy and tasty! For me, it was important to cut the broccoli into small pieces and cook it very lightly, so it still had some crunch. My husband loved it…thank you, Martina.

Thank you so much Diane, I'm glad you both enjoyed! 😊
