I couldn’t let the summer go by without sharing another salad recipe, could I?

Maybe you’re overloaded with summer salads by now…

Or maybe, just maybe, you’re like me, and you could eat salads just about every day, and then some!

I’m hoping you’re in the latter category, because I could definitely eat salads just about every week. And when it involves fresh flavors, veggies, and protein? Even better!

But instead of sharing another boring ‘ole chicken salad recipe, I jazzed it up for you, friends! This Italian Chicken Salad is anything but boring, and is bursting with all of that summer goodness. And it makes the perfect 30 Minute Thursday meal! It’s ready in just about 10 minutes, with no oven required!

See? I told you this Italian Chicken Salad will take the classic dish to the next level. No plain stuff here!

And, truth be told, I’m not a big fan of regular chicken salad, which is why I love to mix it up! Remember this Strawberry Poppy Seed Chicken Salad and that Lightened Up Zesty Chicken Salad? The plain version, with miracle whip, celery, etc. is just not for me.

But, throw in some zesty Italian flavors, and I’m all in! First, the pesto…mmm mmm good! It makes the most delicious combination when paired with a touch of mayonnaise. And then there’s the olives. Oh, black olives, how I love thee! Add in some fresh mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and shredded rotisserie chicken. Mmm mmm good!

And easy! So easy, guys! But, you knew that was coming, right? This Italian Chicken Salad takes just minutes to whip up, especially if you use the store bought shredded rotisserie chicken (it’s one of my secret, time saver ingredients that I use in a lot of my meals). It’s fast, fresh, and perfect for when you don’t want to turn on the oven or stove.

So, if you’re in need of an easy meal or dish for your next outing, this Italian Chicken Salad is it! You’ll love the zesty flavors an ease of this summer salad!
