This fresh and vibrant low FODMAP grilled chicken and egg salad is perfect for an easy dinner or lunch. It's filled with gorgeous summer flavours with hints of lime and basil. The cucumber gives the dish a refreshing crunch. We also love that this dish is protein-packed with tasty grilled chicken and hard-boiled eggs.
Note on sweet corn: This recipe uses a low FODMAP amount of sweet corn per serving. Please see the Monash University FODMAP diet app for more information.
Meat free note: We've had some requests on how to make this dish meat free - you could easily sub in crispy pan-fried tofu or a low FODMAP serving of butter beans fried in lemon and dairy free spread.
Buy a bunch of spring onions/scallions with long green leaves. You can use the green leaves in your low FODMAP meals, just make sure you avoid using the white stem and lime green stems as these are high FODMAP. Once you've harvested the leaves pop the spring onion/scallion bulbs into a glass of water on the window sill. The leaves will reshoot so you can harvest them again.
Choose a mayonnaise that does not include onion or garlic powder. We like using Best Foods Mayonnaise (Lite or regular). If you are a meal plan member you can also grab the recipe for our egg free mayonnaise here.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
