This Paleo taco chicken salad is a fun and flavorful spin on the more traditional mayo chicken salad. It’s a delicious Whole30 recipe that is easy to add to your meal prep. It’s also low-carb, loaded with veggies and spices that are sure to have you making this recipe again and again!
One thing I love most about this Paleo chicken taco salad is how quick it is to whip together. After weeks of always prepping a regular chicken salad with the traditional ingredients, like mayo, grapes, and celery, I needed to change it up. That’s when I started playing with different seasonings and veggies to add. It’s also a really great way to use up leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken!
I basically took the taco seasoning I use in my chicken taco soup recipe and mixed them in with the mayo here. Most mayo brands at the store aren’t Whole30 or Paleo. You’ll either have to make your own mayo or pick up a compliant option. Primal Kitchen (code PALEOBAILEY for 10% off) has an awesome one made with avocado oil. You can get it from stores like Whole Foods, from Amazon, or at a cheaper price.
There’s a lot of ways you can customize the Paleo taco chicken salad recipe to make it your own. You can add more or less seasoning, cilantro, or substitute your favorite veggies. I often use whatever peppers I have on hand already. While I love green and red peppers, sometimes a yellow pepper thrown in there gives it a different hint of sweetness that the other two don’t. Use what works for you!
