Whole30 Dill Chicken Salad

January brings all the diets and meal plans into the limelight, doesn’t it? I’m not one to buy into (or recommend) crazy fad diets, but I do personally find an occasional (1-2x/year for me personally) Whole30 to be beneficial. I have a fair amount of recipes that happen to be Whole30 compliant without even trying and this Whole30 Dill Chicken Salad is one of them! If you’re curious about why I like Whole30, you can find a post all about the revelations I’ve experienced (none of which are related to body composition) here.

Whole30 Dill Chicken Salad
The Inspiration Behind the Recipe

I first made this recipe for my best friend’s baby shower last August. She had the cutest woodsy-ish theme and her theme was the inspiration for the dill sprigs. And it’s a good thing, because these fresh dill sprigs are one of my favorite parts of the recipe!

Whole30 Approved Chicken Salad

Whether you’re packing a lunch, planning a baby shower menu or just looking to spruce up your Whole30 recipe options, this Whole30 Dill Chicken Salad will be your new favorite. It’s such a nice balance of healthy fats from avocado oil mayo (I love Primal Kitchen’s) and almonds, lean protein, a hint of sweetness from grapes, some crunch from celery and extra boost of freshness from the dill!

KISS Tip: Enjoy this Whole30 Dill Chicken Salad on a bed of greens or if not on a Whole30, I actually love to stuff some of the chicken salad inside Siete Foods Grain Free Taco Shells! Such a fun take on Taco Tuesday, right?
