Description

The perfect meal-prep salad for weekday lunches or to bring to your next summer cookout!

  • 3 large boneless chicken breasts cooked and shredded (I recommend boiling the chicken breasts in water for 1015 minutes (or until fully cooked), let cool slightly and then shred when still warm)

  • 1 cup mayo (make sure Whole30 compliant)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 cup cranberries (if you can’t find Whole30 compliant cranberries, you can sub raisins – just read your labels)

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 23 Tablespoons orange juice concentrate
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 Teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
