Basil Cashew Chicken Salad Recipe ( Paleo & Healthy)

  • Serves 4
  • Easy




Look…. We know everyone has there favorite version of chicken salad. But, I promise you this version will be added to your top 5 no doubt. This paleo & healthy chicken salad recipe is super easy to make too!

You don’t even have to cook the chicken. We normally just buy a rotisserie chicken from Publix some you don’t have to waste a bunch of time cooking it. The great thing about buying a rotisserie chicken is that you can get one already seasoned. Publix normally has 3 or 4 types from Mojo, Lemon Pepper, Garlic & Herbs, or Regular. We also use Paleo Mayo and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar in ours. We use the apple cider vinegar in place of white wine vinegar for a more healthy option. The health benefits from apple cider vinegar are so great! Never hurts to add it to any meal. Plus, it gives our healthy paleo chicken salad recipe an amazing flavor. Seriously, don’t knock it until you try it! 🙂  And, we use FRESH basil. Not the ground up kind from the shaker.  Lastly, the cashews help give it a little bit of sweetness to balance out the vinegar. However, the ingredients are pretty self-explanatory but,  here is a quick list.

Pull & Chop Rotisserie Chicken

Ok, this is probably the most unfun part of our healthy paleo chicken salad recipe. You will need to first pull all the meat off of your rotisserie chicken. As you do this place the meat on a cutting board. After you have pulled all the meat of your chicken you will want to chop it up into medium-sized cubes. After that as you put the chicken into a bowl you can shred it a little bit if you choose. If not that is fine too!


Crush & Add Cashews

Next, you will take one cup of cashews and place them on your cutting board. You will then want to cover the cashews with a napkin. From here you can start crushing your cashews, you will want to use a large metal spoon, thor's hammer or something to that effect. You DON'T want to finely crush them, you just wanted them into smaller chunks. After you've given them a few wacks you can scrap them into the mixing bowl.


Chop & Add Your Fresh Basil

Next, you will get approximately 1/4 of fresh basil and put it on your cutting board. Just thinly slice and chop up the basil. Pretty simple....Then scrap it into your mixing bowl..
How are you liking this recipe so far? Pretty repetitive I know.. but, that's the way we like it. :)


Add 3- 4 tablespoons of Paleo Avacodo Mayo

Self-explanatory step here. Use a tablespoon and put 3 or 4 ( or more) large scoops of mayo in yout bowl. This is really just a preference on your part. We like ours more "mayonnaisey". If you want to use less feel free!


Add 2 table spoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

This is such a great tweak to this recipe from all the rest. Simply add two tablespoons of your Apple Cider Vinegar to the mixing bowl.


Mix Up Your Ingredients

Using a tablespoon, mix up the ingredients in your bowl


Cover with plastic wrap & place in the refrigerator for one hour

once you've mixed up your ingredients you will want to cover your bowl with plastic wrap. Then place your bowl in the refrigerator for about an hour. This will give you awesome healthy chicken salad some time to marinate in all the basil, mayo, and apple cider vinegar. Doing this will really set the flavors off! After, that you can serve it up!
