I grew up eating chicken salad, tuna salad, egg-salad....all made with mayo (or Miracle Whip!). I still love those salads, and wanted to find a good alternative for my son who can't eat mayo due to his allergies.
Then I realized avocado is a perfect solution!!
Here's my allergy-friendly version of chicken salad. You can make it in 10 minutes or less.
Fresh chicken is ideal, but in a pinch you can use canned chicken. I'm still looking for an organic canned brand, but I found this at my local Giant grocery store, and it's raised without antibiotics and just includes chicken - no fillers.
Mash up half an avocado or more - whatever you prefer.
Add fresh diced tomatoes or other veggies or fresh herbs.
Spread on your favorite bread, wrap or salad, or even eat by itself! I'm still looking for a better bread alternative for my son - I don't like that this looks like unhealthy white bread, but it's the best option we have right now. It's King Arthur's Gluten Free bread basically made of tapioca and rice flour. More posts to come about bread!!
