Grilling up a batch of chicken breasts or grabbing a rotisserie chicken can be a great way to make a quick meal, but if you’re looking to mix things up, here are three variations on chicken salad that are fast, nutritious and delicious.
If you prefer, you can also swap out chicken for canned tuna or salmon for each of these.
