This month, I’m serving you up a delicious powerhouse of a salad you never saw coming on AIP: Honey “Mustard” Chicken Salad! This nutrient dense, detoxification-supporting salad has ingredients that can be found all year round. It’s a crunchy, chopped-type salad… the kind of salad that takes half an hour to eat while you enjoy every little bite!

KC Naturals is an AIP condiment company based out of Kansas City that has developed really incredible nightshade-free BBQ sauces, ketchup, tomato sauce, and now “mustard“! Their mustard is made with nourishing ingredients like butternut squash, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, horseradish and a touch of honey. If you can’t source this delicious condiment, I did give notes in the recipe for replacing it to help you out!

This salad makes 4 medium servings — if you’re serving a hungry crowd you can bulk it up with extra chicken and add some avocado! I divided this salad up into 4 containers so I could easily “grab and go” my meals for a couple days. It’s a flexible recipe too — you can add shredded carrots, coconut flakes, parsley or cilantro, you name it! The best way to learn to cook is to experiment yourself and find out what your favorite flavor combinations are!

Honey "Mustard" Chicken Salad
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  1. In a food processor, pulse the broccoli florets 15 to 20 times until very finely chopped.
  2. Transfer broccoli to a large serving bowl with the chicken, spinach, apple, raisins and onion.
  3. Whisk together remaining ingredients to prepare the dressing. Toss with the salad until well combined. You may drizzle each individual serving with more KC Naturals Mustard, if desired.
I highly recommend sourcing KC Natural Imitation Mustard for this recipe, but if you cannot, you can replace it with an additional tablespoon vinegar, 1 teaspoon honey, ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric and a pressed clove of garlic.
