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 easiestand 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.

In a coconut wrap – love the ones from Thrive Market
With a fork!
