Chicken salad is one of those dishes that seemingly everyone’s mom or grandmother has a version of, partly because children love it. At first it’s the classic with simply salt, pepper and mayonnaise. As children get older moms start adding ingredients like chopped celery, a little onion, and maybe some relish. Ultimately, as we grow older and our culinary tastes change we get more adventurous. You may order chicken salad at a restaurant that has grapes and nuts – yum! Our chef came up with this recipe using clean, real food ingredients. The apples add a nice sweet crunch while the dried cranberries a create a delicious tartness. We even give you a recipe for paleo mayonnaise!
