Keto & Whole30 Strawberry Chicken Salad

June 09, 2020



Keto & Whole30 Strawberry Chicken Salad

Some say that as you see more and more American flags billowing proudly as warm breezes sweep past front porches on Memorial Day that summer has "unofficially" begun. For eager epicureans and farmer's market shoppers, the appearance of plump scarlet strawberries bursting with sun-ripened syrupy sweetness signals the start of the sultry season. 

We're celebrating strawberry season and the start of summer with one of our favorite strawberry recipes: strawberry chicken salad with mayo. Our version of chicken and strawberry salad is Whole30 friendly, keto, Primal and paleo, and includes just nine real-food ingredients and 10 minutes of meal prep (if using already-cooked chicken).

The two-ingredient dressing for this salad includes rich avocado oil mayo punctuated with the slight spice of mustard seed and vinegary burst from our new Dijon Mustard. The dressing cloaks chargrilled chicken cubes, sun-sweet ripe strawberries, punchy raw red onion, nutty toasted almond slices, snappy and clean celery cubes, and not-quite-ripe diced avocado in creaminess that allows the rich, sweet, savory flavors to hang out on the tongue. Whether devoured on a bed of refreshing mixed greens; in between gluten-free sandwich bread; in a cabbage or collard green swaddle; or in front of an open fridge while you cool off from the beating sun, spooning mouthfuls in a happy trance.

*Cook's tip: Use an avocado that's still firm to the touch. A very ripe avocado will be too mushy for this recipe.
