Finally sucking it up and learning how to make homemade dairy-free mayo has opened a whole new world of food for me. I now love making a big batch of the plain mayo, and then experimenting with it in all kinds of recipes, adding different flavours, etc.
Yesterday I threw this Cherry Chicken Salad together and made enough for a couple days of quick, cold lunches. Delicious and refreshing!
-3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed (I usually just bake mine with salt and pepper)
-3/4 cup dairy free mayo
-1.5 tablespoons of dill
-squeeze of lemon
-1 cup cherries, pitted and halved
-1/2 cup diced celery
-1/2 cup diced cucumber
-1 apple, diced
-1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
-lettuce for wrapping
- Mix it all together and serve in lettuce wraps, or between two pieces of toasted gluten free bread. Yum!
Eat well, move your body, and have a great week!
