Howdy folks

Day 19 since my VSG and I’m on my purée diet and looking for some guidance. Did you guys use any sauces to make this bland chicken salad taste good, I’ve seen some sugar free bbq sauces but wanted to see if anyone used anything else.

Thanks!
Mark

I am a mayo person and have used low-fat mayo. Some other ideas are plain greek yogurt, mustard... greek yogurt makes a really nice base for "dressings." I've made ranch before with a dry ranch packet and a container of plain greek yogurt.

I was going to suggest the “ranch dressing” as well made with a couple tablespoons of the dry ranch mix @jnfinney mentioned with an individual Greek yogurt. Also a little bit of Vidalia onion dressing mixed in adds another flavor and one other I would love if I could get past the looks of it is to mix in avocado and Greek yogurt (I assume you can have avocado but you should ask to be certain).

I like to mix 2 T mayo (or low fat), 1 tsp yellow mustard, 1/2 tsp curry powder, 2 T Water for a curry mustard sauce. I'm pre-surgery, so I ate it on grilled chicken today, but I bet it would be delicious in pureed chicken or tuna salad. (You probably wouldn't need all of it, that's just the proportions I had premade - I used about half of that for 2 small thighs)

I absolutely did.

Light mayo or greek yogurt=plain chicken salad. Taco seasoning=Mexican. Curry powder=Asian. Chicken bullion powder=chicken and gravy. Cajun seasoning=Jambalaya. No sugar added Tomato sauce+garlic+onion+oregano=Italian.

Obviously, I ate a LOT of chicken. But changing it up all the time made the chopped chicken or puree tolerable.

PS-Try Everything bagel seasoning or guacamole seasoning too.

I agree that sounds good. I was just looking at a recipe for Buffalo cauliflower.
