  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup sliced drained sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, chopped
  • 2 medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Slash the fat to just 4 grams per serving by using fat-free mayonnaise instead of reduced-fat.
  • tip 2
    To shred romaine lettuce, after washing and drying leaves, stack a pile of leaves on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut leaves crosswise into thin strips. Measure 4 cups lightly packed shreds for this salad.
