Favorite Menu: Pesto Chicken Salad

Posted by: delitaagain In: Menus

1 cup Grape tomatoes, sliced
1 cup Artichoke hearts, canned, low-sodium, chopped chunky
4 oz. Chicken breast, pre-cooked, chopped chunky
.5 cup 1% low-fat Cottage cheese
1 Tbsp. Pesto sauce

Simple but very easy. I made this ahead and think it tasted better for letting the flavors merge. It left me feeling pampered, satisfied and slender. =)

For some reason, these ingredients were listed as “Pesto Chicken Wrap,” a gluten-free menu on the Flat Belly site. I think the “wrap” got lost in translation but it sure made a great, light salad. Yum! One of my top favorites so far. I might add a fruit to fill out the meal. Don’t forget the pesto, it’s the belly blaster!

[...] Pesto Salad. This travels well, too. It is also a little lighter than the lunch salad (nice for evening) but [...]
