Chicken Veggie Egg salad

This recipe was created when my cousin was coming over for lunch. He’s a gym enthusiast and he strictly asked me not to make anything fried. Now I being a Punjabi, my first thought was to make crispy lemon chicken, but as it was no fried day, I settled for salad. I had already bought chicken, and had some eggs and lots of veggies in the fridge. Healthiest thing possible? Boiled chicken and vegetables! Bingo! With that thought I started on the recipe. It came out really delicious and is very filling as well. You can have this as a meal in itself, or can also pack this for lunch. Just pack the dressing and veggies separately and mix them when you sit down to eat. Simple..
So let’s start and make something now.
