Paleo and AIP Chicken Salad Recipe With Grapes, Apple, and Celery

AIP CHICKEN SALAD RECIPE

I’ve always loved chicken salad recipes – you can make a large batch and store them easily in the fridge. And they’re great as a quick snack, a side dish, or even an entire meal if you’re hungry!

But most chicken salad recipes involve mayo (recipe here), which is not only a hassle to make on a Paleo diet but also isn’t AIP-friendly if you have autoimmune issues (read more about AIP here and get the AIP Food List here).

And onto this AIP chicken salad recipe…

Paleo Curried Chicken Salad Recipe

paleo curried chicken salad recipe

I really love chicken salad recipes, but my favorite are Paleo curried chicken salad recipes. Maybe I just have a soft spot for anything curry flavored.

Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for a really long time, but I kept putting it off because I didn’t want to the trouble of making Paleo mayo (it’s not that difficult, but it’s also not that easy).

So, when I heard about Primal Kitchen Mayo (ready-made Paleo mayo in a jar that’s created primarily with avocado oil – made by Primal Kitchen), I knew that the first recipe I was going to make would be this curried chicken salad! If you haven’t tried Primal Kitchen Mayo yet, it’s definitely a much easier way to go than creating mayo from scratch every time.

28 Yummy Paleo Banana Bread Recipes

Paleo Banana Bread Recipes

Banana bread holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I had a nanny who would make a big loaf every Friday afternoon, complete with chocolate chips! She would let me lick the bowl and spatula after she was done and of course we’d be nibbling away at the loaf all weekend long.

Best of all, this recipe works even if you only have sweet potatoes or only have butternut squash!
