Crunchy Chicken Salad

It is very beneficial to keep your sugar levels as low as possible since sugar contributes to inflammation and feeds cancer cells. So rather than use crackers for snacks and appetizers, how about trying the crunchy cucumber? It makes a very pretty presentation and adds flavor to the salad or any dip you wish to fill the cucumber with. The chicken you use must be organic with no hormones, antibiotics and preferably free range. The chicken provides protein that helps to rebuild tissue and support your Immune System. Bon Appétit!

Chicken Salad:

Bake a chicken at 375 for 75 to 90 minutes. Check the temperature oin the breast to make sure it is well done.

Let the chicken cool. Peel off the chicken breasts and chop in a food processor. Place the chicken in a bowl.

Add the following to the food processor and chop finely:

3 Celery stalks

½ onion

1 pickle (raw and fermented)

2 garlic cloves

Add the above to the chicken.

The Dressing:

½ cup of grape seed mayonnaise

1 tsp. sage

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. dill

¼ teaspoon cayenne (or more)

Salt to taste

Mix the dressing into the chicken and stir well.

Peel a cucumber if it is not organic and slice it into ¼ inch slices.

With a spoon, core out the seeds and create a little dip in the slice.

Fill the cucumber with the chicken and top with fresh dill. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

    • Hi June,
      I have yet to find one, so you can make your own. The grape seeed mayo that I have used on occasion has about 1 tsp of soy protein in 32 ounces of mayo….minimal, but if you are very concerned about it, then you will have to make your own. 🙂
