Chicken Pesto Salad

Chicken Pesto Salad 

A scrumptious summer lunch! We had so much pesto left over from our Mushroom reel, we wanted to show other ways you can use it. This Chicken Pesto Salad is a favourite summer recipe, super simple and interchangeable with other veggies you might have in your fridge.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 mins


For the salad:

  • 650g Chicken Breast, cooked through
  • 1 packet of cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 whole cucumber, roughly chopped into chunks
  • A big handful of spinach leaves
  • Handful of chopped Basil

For the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp Rocket and Walnut Pesto (see our previous mushroom recipe)
  • 2 tbsp of Greek Yoghurt
  • A squeeze of lemon

For the pesto - see our earlier mushroom recipe.


1. Mix all the salad ingredients together in a serving bowl
2. Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a separate bowl, then pour over the salad and mix well.
3. Enjoy!
