Chicken And Grape Salad

Chicken And grapes Salad

If you have any leftover chicken lying around, this salad is a perfect way to transform it into something delicious. It’s got crunchy celery, juicy grapes, and a creamy dill mayonnaise dressing – and yes, kale. But the kale really isn’t overpowering here; if you’re a little skeptical of eating it raw, this is a very manageable place to start.

In the hot summer weather, this is a great salad to have ready in the fridge for some quick protein that you don’t need to turn on the oven to enjoy. Or you could make a big batch at the beginning of the week and pack it in your lunchbox with some carrot sticks or other finger vegetables for a fast and easy lunch. Or try it inside a lettuce wrap to add even more vegetables and some extra crunch.

This would also be good to bring to a barbecue or potluck – show up with a big bowl and impress everyone with your amazing healthy mayonnaise skills. You might just make a few Paleo converts out of people who expected salad to be boring and tasteless and got yours instead!
