Chicken Shawarma Salad (AIP)

As weather begins to change our thoughts of food begins to change as well. Here at POTG we are thinking about yummy salads. The bold flavors of shawarma go nicely with a salad, and our AIP version tastes amazing. The cucumber and red onion add another layer of textures and flavors that make this salad pop. This chicken recipe is super versatile and it might be a good idea to make a batch to keep on hand. Make a quick snack on the go by taking one of our tortillas with  some julienne cucumber and red onion for an easy wrap, or simply grab a piece of chicken for a quick, tasty bite. Be sure to add this to your spring and summer menus!
