Chicken salad is one of Chef Nick’s favorite foods on earth. Not only can you eat it straight as a snack, you can spoon it onto chips or crackers, make a sandwich with it, and of course, make some chicken salad wraps (which is our household go-to).

Even better? This version is mayo-free and made with tahini dressing to keep that creamy, satiating element going strong. Plus, there’s a ton of different plants in here alongside the protein (which you know is my thing; fiber fuels your beneficial gut bugs and protein fuels your muscle, hair, skin, and nails).

So without further ado, here’s a quick and easy recipe for a fruit, veggie, and herb-packed chicken salad that we LOVE to have prepped at home for quick wraps and salads. Nick can and does eat this weekly when I make it for him… we are obsessed!

P.S. This is not my original recipe; I adapted it from Sunkissed Kitchen with a few tweaks including hazelnuts instead of walnuts (hazelnuts were made for chicken salad), and organic adobo (obviiiiiiously – we all know it goes on everything). 😉

SERVES

Base Ingredients

  • 1 pound shredded roasted chicken (we use one organic rotisserie chicken)⁣
  • 1 cup celery (diced)⁣
  • 1/2 cup red grapes (halved)⁣
  • 1/2 cup parsley OR cilantro (chopped)⁣
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts (chopped)⁣
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins (chopped)⁣

Tahini Dill Sauce

  • 1/4 cup tahini⁣
  • 4 tbsp. lemon juice⁣
  • 4 tbsp. white wine vinegar⁣
  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill ⁣(can omit this if you don't like dill)
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard⁣
  • 1/2 tbsp. organic adobo (frontier brand)⁣
  • 1 tsp. black pepper⁣
  • sea salt to taste⁣

Directions

  1. Shred the chicken and add to a bowl with all the chopped/diced base ingredients
  2. Add all the sauce ingredients to a food processor and blend. (For an extra life hack, double the recipe and make extra for other dishes because this works really well as a salmon marinade too)
  3. Mix the sauce with the base ingredients until everything is evenly coated; add more salt and pepper if needed.⁣
  4. Serve on wraps, toast, crackers, in a green salad, etc. Enjoy!
