Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Salad



1 lb. fresh broccoli (about 2 cups chopped) ($1.89)

1 cup chopped cooked chicken* ($1.16)

2 oz. cheddar, shredded (about ½ cup) ($1.00)

2 green onions, sliced ($0.25)

1/3 cup ranch dressing ($0.49)

freshly cracked pepper to taste ($0.05)


Finely chop the broccoli. It's important that the broccoli pieces be very small. Chop the chicken into small pieces as well.

Add the broccoli, chopped chicken, shredded cheddar, sliced green onions, and ranch dressing to a large bowl. Stir well until everything is evenly coated in dressing. Add freshly cracked pepper to your liking.

Serve as is, stuff into a tortilla or pita for a sandwich, or stuff into a tortilla and toast in a skillet until the inside is melted for a quesadilla. Keep any remaining salad refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.


*Use any type of pre-cooked chicken, like rotisserie chicken, grilled chicken, or canned chicken breast.
