Picnic Za'atar Chicken Salad Slider

Picnic Za'atar Chicken Salad Slider

Chicken salad is one of the classic American dishes. It’s often made with mayonnaise and chopped celery. But, I wanted to add my Mediterranean twist to this by adding za’atar and swapping out mayo with Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt will make everything super creamy while adding a tangy note to the dish while za’atar brings extra savory herbaceous flavors, taking this salad to another level.

As the weather gets nice outside, I often go out for a picnic at the park, and I bring this to make a DIY chicken sandwich which everyone loves. Make this salad and put it in a container. Bring slider buns and a few condiments, like tomatoes, cucumbers, or arugula, to make easy, delicious chicken salad sliders!
