Best Chicken Salad Recipe
4-15-2013

Most chicken salad recipes contain loads of mayonnaise or dairy products, but not this one. A simple can of coconut milk makes this salad deliciously creamy while roasted chiles, fresh cilantro, sweet fruit and crunchy pecans really bring the flavor. Serve on large butter lettuce leaves. 

Makes: 8 Servings 

Here's what you need... 
For the Creamy Coconut Dressing:

  • 1 400gm can coconut milk, full fat
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • lemon zest (all you can get from one small lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • dash salt
  • dash pepper

For the Salad:

  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1 cup red grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 apple, finely chopped
  • 100gms can mild chopped green chiles
  • 450gms roasted chicken, chopped
  1. For the Creamy Coconut Dressing: Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk well and then set in the fridge to chill while you prepare the salad.
  2. For the Salad: Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add the creamy coconut dressing and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with large lettuce leaves and Dijon mustard.
