Personally, I like a chicken salad that has some crunch to it. Seems that Rustic Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes are loaded with just the right amount. At least in my opinion.
As many of you know by now, I am on a gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and corn-free diet. Not by choice mind you, but because I have either food allergies or intolerances to certain foodstuff. That’s why in order to meet my dietary restrictions I will often modify recipes or create my own.
This recipe for Rustic Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes is made using ingredients that are free of gluten, soy, dairy, and corn.
I personally use Spectrum Canola Mayonnaise because it is made from all natural ingredients and is gluten-free.
Another quality product that I also highly recommend is Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayonnaise. It is also made from all natural ingredients, is gluten-free, sugar-free, primal and paleo, dairy-free, and soy and canola free.
There are several options when it comes to your selection of chicken. Feel free to use a rotisserie, baked, broiled or canned chicken.
In the video, you may notice that I have chopped onion in a small bowl. Since I am allergic to onions and garlic, I purposely left it out of my mixture. However, I do encourage you to add a couple tablespoons of chopped onion to your chicken salad.
A few extra additions might include a couple tablespoons of pickle relish, a chopped hard-boiled egg or two, diced red peppers and/or fresh cilantro. You can even play around with extra seasonings such as a pinch or two of curry and red or black pepper.
Fresh garden ripe tomatoes are always the best. However since I made this recipe during the off-season, I purchased tomatoes at the grocery store.
I like to nestle Rustic Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes on top of a bed of crisp fresh lettuce. A sprig or two of fresh parsley works perfectly as a garnish.
Serve with a side of crackers or thick cut potato chips. (Be sure to use gluten-free crackers or chips if you need the recipe to be gluten-free.)
Chicken salad is always best when chilled for a few hours or overnight. Stuff and garnish the tomatoes right before serving and refrigerate leftovers.
Another option is to use any leftover chicken salad to make sandwiches.
