16 Gluten-Free Chicken Salad Recipes to prep for easy lunches this Spring and Summer.
One of my big pregnancy cravings during the second trimester has been salads. Not the lettuce and veggie kind of salads, but the mayo and vinegar-based salads paired with chicken, tuna, salmon, or chickpeas. Egg salad? Not so much. Hard boiled eggs and I aren’t really getting along right now. But give me some easy gluten-free chicken salad recipes and I will be all about them!
While the traditional sandwich route with gluten-free bread is an option, I generally love eating these salads in Romaine lettuce wedges, on a bed of greens, or scooped up by plantain chips and veggies. Bread tends to overpower things a bit too much for my liking, and these accompaniments really let the flavors of each recipe become the stars of the show.
In my search for all things chicken salad over the last couple of weeks, I found 16 gluten-free chicken salad recipes that I have to share with you. And for the heads up, the majority of these can be modified to be dairy-free and/or Paleo!
