Coming up with new variations of this classic sandwich is something that I love to do. My Mediterranean version is definitely a new favorite! This chicken salad features sweet piquante peppers, which are soooo delicious paired with the salty kalamata olives and feta cheese in this sandwich. My husband, who hates cucumbers, really liked this sandwich too. He actually said that the cucumbers were a nice addition to the sandwich. Yay!
I have been obsessed with sweet piquante peppers since I had them on the Mediterranean Veggie sandwich at Panera Bread. I loved that sandwich so much that I created a sandwich wrap at home using those same flavors. The result was a MUCH lower carb, non-vegetarian Mediterranean Turkey Wrap. I really like to have a little protein on my sandwiches because it helps me to stay full longer.
Anyway, back to the chicken salad.
I used canned white meat chicken because that is what I had on hand, and because I just love the convenience of it for lunchtime meals. I served mine on Nature’s Own Sandwich Rounds. As usual, I substituted half of the mayo with plain, non-fat greek yogurt to cut down on the fat.
This will definitely be on the lunch menu again in the near future!
