Pesto Chicken Salad (Pasta Salad Style With No Pasta)
15 mins (prep 15)

This is a super healthy salad, chicken, veggies and a yummy pesto dressing. It reminds me of pasta salad because of the dressing but I make it without pasta. You could definitely add it, I'd just increase the dressing slightly if you do. It came from a combination of different recipes. I love substituting greek yogurt for things like mayo, which was part of my idea here. All frozen veggies could be replaced with canned... sometimes I use asparagus instead of grean beans. Also, if you prefer less of a tangy dressing you can add a little splenda/stevia/sweetener of your preference and/or decrease the lemon.
