Eating a chicken salad sandwich while on a diet is virtually unheard of…and we absolutely love chicken salad! So once we learned how to make our own whole 30 compliant olive oil mayo…it opened up a whole new world of possibilities for many of our favorites. So today we are sharing the details for how we created this yummy dish… See Mayo and Salad recipe below 🙂
Olive OIL MAYO
1 egg (room temperature)
mix with hand mixer or we use a blender
Add in lemon juice to taste ( I dont really measure just squeeze in a little at a time, then taste at the end before I add in any more) typically its 1 tsp.
Add 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
add in 1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste (optional)
garlic 1/4 tsp or a couple shakes (optional) we like garlic in everything 🙂
then blend in 1/2-3/4 C light olive oil, mix until thick. (tip..start with 1/4 cup blending it completely…then another 1/4 cup and so on…you may only need a 1/2 cup)
Once your mayo is made this can be used in just about any type of dressing, sauce, etc.
Cashew Chicken Salad
chop 1-2 breasts of cooked chicken
chop 1-2 green onions depending on how much you like them 🙂
chop 2 T cashews or almonds both are amazing!
chop about 4 pitted dates (you can also use grapes if you don’t have dates)
mix in 2-3 T of olive oil mayo…
add in a little coconut milk till you have your desired consistency
Serve on a bed of baby romaine lettuce
