It might just be me, but I enjoy chicken salad. It’s a simple dish, with easy to find ingredients. Plus, it’s not hard to make Paleo versions of if you’re just switching to this way of eating.
I’ve gathered our 4 favorite Paleo chicken salad recipes for you to take a look at. Try one, or try them all, but let us know which one you liked best!
Growing up, my grandma would make chicken soup and chicken salad all the time. It was a simple recipe, but just thinking about her and this dish brings a smile to my face.
She would cut up cucumbers and iceberg lettuce, and have the salad on white toast.
When I moved away, I tried to make her chicken salad on my own. Sadly, I’ve only gotten it right one time. This recipe comes close though, so I hope you enjoy it’s simplicity.
I have a feeling that there are many of you who share my sentiment, “Everything is better with bacon”. I don’t need to say much more about this recipe, other than that.
I use the word “love” a lot when I’m talking about food don’t I? Well, let me be more accurate. Thai food for me is a whole body experience. I enjoy the smell of it when I walk into a good Thai restaurant; the beautiful colors of the curries, salads, and desserts; the blend of flavors; and the heat of the spices as they hit my mouth. Just thinking about a good Thai curry, makes me think, “mmmmm”.
So in one of my recent pregnancy cravings, all I could think about was pineapple curry. I had planned to make a different chicken salad dish that day, but I had an “Aha” moment. What if I made a curry chicken salad? It was a risk for sure, but one I was willing to make.
This is a slight modification of a friend’s recipe. The first time I had it, it was like a taste explosion. Granted I ate it on a croissant, but that’s aside from the point. This is a great Paleo chicken salad option for a hot day, cold day, or really just any day.
But don’t eat it on a croissant if you’re trying to go Paleo. Unless you have a recipe for a Paleo croissant, in which case, please send me the recipe, and a dozen pre-cooked ones.
