Winter Chicken Salad


This winter chicken salad is the best salad for those moments during the colder months when you crave something fresh but hearty and filling.

For sweet potatoes – Sweet potato – Avocado oil – Cinnamon – Paprika – Kosher salt – Black pepper


Roast sweet potatoes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add cubed sweet potatoes to a rimmed baking sheet and toss to coat with olive oil, paprika, cinnamon, salt, and pepper.

Spread out in a single layer so the edges can crisp up nicely. Roast for 15-20 minutes, until tender and starting to caramelize on the edges. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Prep salad ingredients. While the sweet potatoes are roasting prep the remaining salad ingredients.

Dice the avocado and apple, toast the pecans, and shred the chicken. Set everything aside.

Make the dressing. In a small bowl or jar whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, avocado oil mayonnaise if using, honey if using, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper until well combined and emulsified.
