A Real Chicken Salad

Our version of Chicken Salad in today’s Health-e-Recipe is fresher and healthier than the bland, high-fat sandwich filling that usually comes to mind. Using home-cooked chicken breast meat AICR’s version adds cholesterol-lowering olive oil (a source of antioxidants), plus lemon juice, oregano (one of the highest-phytochemical herbs) and capers — another source of healthful compounds.

With tomatoes, olives and green beans, this Mediterranean-style chicken salad is served on a bed of crisp Romaine lettuce and topped with parsley. It’s a delicious springtime lunch dish you’ll want to make again and again — especially if you’re looking for alternatives to red meat and packaged, processed lunchmeats that are associated with higher colon and bladder cancer risk.

    Thank you for your comment. Please see our section on Green Tea in Foods That Fight Cancer?
    AICR’s expert panel found the evidence insufficient to make a recommendation regarding the relationship between tea consumption and cancer risk. Substituting unsweetened tea for sugary beverages can help lower calories and help individuals get to and stay a healthy weight which is an important step in lowering cancer risk.
