This recipe is so easy to make and only has 9 ingredients!  Traditional chicken salad recipes contain grapes.  But this low carb chicken salad recipe swaps the grapes for its friend – the humble (and low carb) blueberry.  The blueberries add a subtle sweetness, and a delicious flavor to the dish.

Ingredients in Keto Chicken Salad

To make this low carb keto chicken salad, I like to add the celery, chicken, cashews, hemp seeds, salt, and seasonings to a mixing bowl.  Next, I like to add in the mayo and give it a good stir.

I have a delicious homemade mayo recipe you are welcome to use.  Or, if you prefer to use store bought mayo, I recommend this Chosen Foods brand, or this Primal Kitchen mayo.

Once the mayo has been mixed in, gently fold in the blueberries.  Gently mixing the blueberries in at the end will help them to stay whole and not get all smooshified on ya.  No one wants a smooshified keto chicken salad!

How to Eat Keto Chicken Salad

There are many ways to eat this dish.  Get creative and have fun with it!  A few of my favorite ways to eat this low carb keto chicken salad are:

  • Straight from the bowl – so good!
  • On a salad – Mix up your favorite greens and place a good amount of this chicken salad on top.  Have at it.
  • Stuffed bell peppers – Cut a bell pepper in half and stuff it with the chicken salad mixture.  Crunchy town.
  • Mini pepper scoopers – Cut up some mini bell peppers and dip them into the keto chicken salad and scoop up a bite of creamy heaven.

Prep Time10 mins
Author: Jill from Simply Jillicious

Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken about 2-3 large breasts
  • 1 cup finely diced celery about 2 stalks
  • 1/2 heaping cup chopped dry roasted salted cashews measure then chop
  • 1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

  • Chop the chicken, celery, and cashews and add them to a mixing bowl.
  • Add in the hemp seeds, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and mayo.
  • Mix until everthing is evenly coated in the mayo.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries and mix until they're evenly distributed.
  • Keep refridgerated and eat within a few days.

Notes

If you don't want to make my homemade mayo, I recommend Chosen Foods Mayo, or Primal Kitchen Mayo.
The mayo will soften the cashews over time.  If making this ahead of time, I suggest adding the chopped cashews in right before serving.
