Avocado, Apple And Chicken Salad Recipe

Chicken salad is traditionally a very mayo-heavy affair – and there’s nothing wrong with a healthy smear of homemade Paleo mayo! Olive oil and egg yolks are both pretty great for you and adding that dose of healthy fat to a salad helps your body absorb the nutrients more effectively.

But what about people with egg sensitivities? What about people on an autoimmune Paleo protocol that doesn’t allow eggs?

Here’s a creamy, satisfying alternative that substitutes avocado and extra-virgin olive oil for the mayo: get all the healthy fats but without the egg. The lime juice and fresh herbs give it a very fresh, springy flavor, and chopped apples add a nice crunch. It’s AIP-friendly as written and a great example of what you can do on the AIP without compromising flavor.

This recipe calls for pre-cooked chicken, so bookmark it for the next time you have leftovers. Or go for a twofer: buy a chicken, roast it, eat the legs and wings for dinner on Day 1, and then save the breasts to make chicken salad for lunch the next day.
