In the summer time, I am constantly craving something fresh, light, easy, and often times, cold. After a PM workout or a long day of work, sometimes the microwave even seems like a hassle. Recently, I’ve had a serious craving for chicken salad, but not just any chicken salad. I wanted to create my own, free of mayo, different than the usual greek yogurt alternative, and packed with flavor and crunch. I am not a chef, nor am I a nutritionist. With that said, I am so excited to start bringing you into the kitchen with me, as being a foodie must qualify for something, right? 🙂 This introduces the first of many Bun Undone recipes, and I cannot wait for you to try.
This chicken salad is a perfect lunch, dinner, or even snack option. It can be enjoyed for up to three days and pairs great with sprouted grain toast or a wrap, lettuce of your choice, or even plain if you’re feeling wild! I was so beyond excited when I found this GoAvo spread at Plum Market. Personally, I am not a fan of greek yogurt, and I knew this recipe called for something equally as creamy and healthy, yet more flavorful. This spread is literally made with avocado, grapeseed oil, white wine vinegar, organic cane sugar (don’t worry, the label still reads 0g of sugar), sunflower lecithin, organic lemon juice and sea salt. That’s it! No artificial preservatives necessary. Can’t find GoAvo at store near on their store locator? Try Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Mayo or Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo, available on Amazon.
I had a blast making this recipe and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. With crunch, creaminess, and a bit of citrus, this chicken salad is extremely satisfying and refreshing; a perfect recipe for the summer.
