My family would always rather have a chicken salad sandwich than a sandwich made with deli meat or peanut butter.

However, sometimes chicken salad can be a little lackluster if the person preparing it is afraid to be creative. A chicken salad made of all chicken and mayo, is a shallow glimpse of what chicken salad truly can be.

Don’t be bland… More is more where chicken salad is concerned!

Today I’m sharing one of our favorite chicken salad variations, Greek Chicken Salad Sandwiches made with wholesome eureka!®  Organic Bread.

Lt. Dan would tell you this is the absolute best chicken salad in the whole wide world, because I used chopped grilled chicken, plain greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, and a whole lot of chunky greek ingredients to make the flavor pop!

Using low fat (or nonfat) plain greek yogurt lightens the chicken salad, while adding additional protein and tangy appeal.

The greek flavor boosting add-ins?

I threw in chopped cucumbers, grapes, lemon zest, fresh dill, parsley, scallions, garlic, and capers. All these ingredients come together to give these Greek Chicken Salad Sandwiches intense contrast and texture.

I used eureka!® Organic Saaa-Wheat because of it’s slightly sweet wheaty essence. It’s a healthy bread with a rich nutty taste that paired perfectly with the perky flavors in the Greek Chicken Salad Sandwiches.
