FINALLY sharing this chicken salad with you guys!! A couple of weeks ago I was at trader joe’s and saw a sonoma chicken salad of sorts in the pre-made foods section and I was so close to buying it for a quick lunch until I read the ingredient list… how could it be so long?!  I have been much more lax in my pregnant and tired state lately that I have been going to convenience over quality but I still always look at the ingredient lists.  It’s been easy to allow vegetable oils and sugars creep in which is fine time to time, but it’s when I read a list that is 20 + ingredients long and filled with things I can’t pronounce – aka chemicals, that I feel an urge to say NO!!  So I picked up chicken and some red grapes and knew I probably had everything else I needed at home.  I am soooo glad I did this because it was the easiest  and tastiest chicken salad i’ve had in awhile.  It is also perfect to make a big batch of for the week to eat for lunch! 

A few ideas of how to eat this Sonoma Chicken Salad:

  • Scoop it into a lettuce wrap.
  • Scoop it up with celery sticks.
  • Serve it on a salad with a little bit of your favorite salad dressing or some oil + apple cider vinegar.
  • Scoop it into bell peppers (large or mini!)
  • In a coconut wrap – love the ones from Thrive Market
  • With a fork!
