Easy-Peasy Whole30 Chicken Salad

It would seem that I couldn’t get enough of Whole30 so I decided to do it again! I’m on day 7 of round 4 (rounds not in consecutive order). In all honesty, I didn’t follow the reintroduction on my last round very well, and ended up feeling pretty terrible. Damn you vanilla soy latte! I have been feeling really great since jumping back in and have enjoyed the structure and opportunity for creativity in the kitchen. If you follow me on Instagram you know I have a love affair with my slow cooker “rotisserie” chicken– I make it about 2-3 times a month. And this tasty and fresh chicken salad is one of the things I most love doing with the leftovers.

Waldorf Chicken Salad (Whole30 + Paleo)

Course: Main Course


  • 1 whole compliant rotisserie chicken (or 4-5 cups precooked chicken) I get the plain one from Whole Foods
  • ½ cup mayonnaise I use Primal Kitchen or Sir Kensington's
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 apple (I like Honeycrisp or Pink Lady) diced; peel, if desired
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes sliced in half (you can also sub 1/2 cup raisins)
  • 1 1/2 cup celery diced
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • Bibb or Romaine lettuce for serving


  • In a large bowl, add chicken, grapes (or raisins), walnuts, apple, celery, gently mix
  • In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and apple cider vinegar
  • Pour mayonnaise "dressing" over the chicken mixture, and stir, ensuring everything is evenly covered
  • Chill for 2 hours, to overnight for best flavor
  • Serve on Romaine, Bibb lettuce, or mixed greens. This is also insanely delicious as a wrap or sandwich
