Creamy Tarator Chicken Salad

 

DifficultyBeginner

We like to keep tarator on hand in the fridge because it's such a great and versatile ingredient, especially when it comes to summer salads.

Tarator makes an incredibly easy yet delicious dressing that requires no extra steps! Combined with some shredded chicken and fresh salad ingredients, you've got yourself a fresh, light and nutritious meal that comes together with ease. 

This creamy tarator chicken salad makes a great dish for many occasions — throw it together when you're short on time, have leftover roast chicken, or need a healthy option to take for lunch.
