Veggie Packed Chicken Salad Sandwich

Veggie Packed Chicken Salad Sandwich
Last Wednesday I left the house at 5:30 pm to go for a midweek, 1:30 minute long run in 94 degree heat. By 7:30 pm I was delving into my nutritious, refreshing, vibrant meal prepared solely by me with zero ingredients prepped ahead of time. Oh, and to keep the timeline accurate, I decided what we were eating that night at approximately 6:55 pm. I know what you’re thinking. “What is this sorcery you speak of?” Truly I tell you, I exhibit zero magic ability unless you count how quickly I can make a cookie disappear. This recipe is just too good. I’m tempted to print it out on flyers and distribute it by hand to my neighbors. Anytime I can get a hearty dose of protein with multiple servings of vegetables in one meal—and it doesn’t taste like dirty leaves— I count it as a win. This veggie-packed chicken salad comes with all the creaminess of traditional chicken salad, but an extra fiber-filled crunch from vegetables and garbanzo beans. It can be served over a bed of lettuce, smashed between two slices of toasted whole grain bread, or scooped up with crackers. This recipe makes a generous portion, making it perfect for lunch the next day!
