This is one of my favourite, quick lunch recipes to make with leftover chicken. And, it also works well in packed lunches. Switching up a heartier leafy green, such as kale, prevents this salad from getting soggy in a lunch box.

The health benefits are numerous such as:

  • Celery is thought of as a crunchy, low-calorie snack, but it is also a great source of nutrients such as vitamin K, potassium, fiber and B vitamins.
  • Walnuts can be a very important factor in health in many ways. The healthy fats decrease cardiovascular risk, contain antioxidants that improve cognitive function, and help the body deal with stress. Walnuts are also a satiating snack that can keep you full longer thereby helping to control weight.
