Thai Chicken Salad

Peanut Free Spicy Thai Chicken Salad

Summer is creeping up around the corner – and is here for some states – and what better lunch is there during the summer than a salad? Chicken salad, in particular, is a great summer go-to. You can make a batch, keep in the fridge for a couple days, and quickly dish it out into a lettuce leaf or on some toasted gluten-free bread.

Instead of your basic chicken salad, why not give it a bit of Thai-inspiration and a little spicy kick? This Peanut Free Spicy Thai Chicken Salad is my new fave chicken salad recipe.

With a little bit of a nutty flavor, minus the nuts, thanks to SunButter, and some gluten-free soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and rice vinegar, you have yourself a Thai sauce. Then add a bit of Sriracha and Fresno chili for some spice, and you have yourself a tasty alternative to traditional chicken salad. Delicious!
