FreeFrom chicken salad with tomato and coconut milk sauce

Corn, dairy egg, gluten, lactose, nut, soya and wheat free

You can make this salad with cold roast chicken or which cold poached chicken, if you also wanted to make the delicious Greek Avgolemono soup. If so, see the soup recipe. The texture of the meat will be much softer if you use poached, rather than roast, chicken.
The sauce is a little like a gaspacho! An effect that you can reinforce by added the finely chopped celery to the sauce.
