One of the quickest throw together meals for leftover chicken or a handy tin of shredded tuna (which I’m not a big fan of) is shredding a chicken breast or two, adding mayonnaise, a few other diced ingredients and seasoning.

If you want some sweetness for those non-keto members of your household, sliced grapes or small dices of firm yellow peaches or apricots are delicious too. A splash of curry powder for a spicier version is also good!

From a young age I remember jars of curried green beans my Mum made served with dinner or BBQ’s as a summer salad. I also recall warm days sitting at the kitchen table with a large bag of green beans Continue reading
