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 is 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.
