Chicken Tomato Salad is a vibrant and delicious salad with heaping piles of fresh veggies, eggs, and flavor-packed chicken. We love this salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing or even Jalapeno Ranch!

Just a few ingredients is all you need for this amazing and perfect Chicken Tomato salad!

Chicken Tomato Salad

Beautiful and delicious salads don’t have to consist of dozens of ingredients. By incorporating quality over quantity you can create a beautiful and mouth-watering Chicken Tomato Salad!  As we approach the new year, most people start thinking about their waistlines too.  The best part about eating a protein-packed salad like this is that it will fill you up, and make you feel good about your choices, without sacrificing any of the flavors that you love.  This juicy chicken salad is a staple you can turn to when those holiday cravings start to creep up again!

This chicken salad holds a special place in my heart for one big reason... it was the first salad I was able to make with ingredients entirely from our homestead. We raised the chickens and butchered them ourselves, we grew the gorgeous cherry tomatoes, onion, and lettuce. There are even a few "weeds" in there! Being able to prepare beautiful food from the land and animals we have raised is quite a feeling of accomplishment. Sharing that experience (the work as well as the eating!) with my children is something that I hope makes an impact on how they view food.

Chicken Salad from the Homestead

This salad holds a special place in my heart for one big reason… it was the first salad I was able to make with ingredients entirely from our homestead. We raised the chickens and butchered them ourselves, we grew the gorgeous cherry tomatoes, onion, and lettuce. There are even a few “weeds” in there!  There is just something about food that you have cultivated on your own.  It tastes better!  I’m here to tell you that the eggs are fresher, the tomatoes are earthier and more flavorful, the lettuce is crisp and full of flavor.  It makes so much difference when you know the soil and the land where your food is coming from.

Dressing to Serve with Chicken Salad

We like to keep things as light (and as homemade) as we can.  We usually stick with a vinaigrette that we can whip up in just minutes.

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp shallots (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspons honey
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

If you are short on the fresh herbs, here is my recipe for an easy vinaigrette.  You can simply throw together the vinegar, olive oil, and some salt and pepper.   Mix well and toss it into your salad bowl. I obviously prefer the fancy version, but sometimes you don’t have any fresh thyme hanging out in your kitchen.

Other dressings that would work well with this chicken tomato salad recipe would be ranch, thousand island, French, blue cheese, or even Italian.

    Why 12 eggs? is this a misprint? That would be 3 eggs per serving amounting to about 270 calories just from that.. Otherwise this sounds great
