One thing we don't do ....Asian lettuce cups

There's one thing you won't see in my recipes or even in my fridge anymore. 

It's mayo.

It started because I was the only one who ate it.  Husband dislikes it.... I won't say hate, but it might be a better word choice.

The kids could care less.

So I would buy the small one and it would go bad before I used it all. 

Mostly I used it for devilled eggs or chicken salad, but since discovering that yougurt works almost the same and is way healthier we use that instead.

Anyway, all that to say... this is one of those recipes I found that works as a good subsitute for a chicken salad.  And, of course, no mayo!

Tell me these don't look good enough to make you give up mayo too!!

Chicken breast, cooked and shredded (I used one big can and one chicken breast but you could easily use two cans)
1/2 c asian salad dressing plus a little more at the end
1 c bagged broccoli slaw (LOVE this stuff!)
1 green pepper, diced very small
2 carrots, shredded

Iceberg or leaf lettuce for cups to serve in

Chop the veggies.

Mix the shredded chicken with the salad dressing.

Add the veggies and slaw.

Mix and add a little more dressing if you need it.

Serve in a lettuce cup.



  1. Hi Stephanie I just found your blog. It looks delicious, will give me ideas on food since I am serious about wanting to loose weight. (Even cut way down on Pepsi well so far successful don't ask when I started though. I have bookmarked your site so I'll come back.

  2. Great Barb! Hope you do well in your weight loss journey. Most of what's on here is relatively healthy... maybe not all the desserts, but all things in moderation, right?
