Sweet Potato Chicken Salad: Paleo Version
Last night I made a paleo version of our Tzatziki Chicken Sweet Potato Salad. Instead of the yogurt based-dressing, I used the follow combination:
1/2 c olive oil
2-3 T dijon mustard
1 T lemon juice
salt, pepper, and dried parsley to taste
Depending on how "saucy" you want the salad to be, you might want to double the amount of dressing. It's funny to think that not long ago I hated all types of mustard, but lately I've been adding dijon to a lot of my recipes. I particularly enjoyed the zing the dijon gave to this dish. It was also well received by some fellow CrossFitters! For those of you who are vegetarians, you could leave out the chicken and add 1/2-1 cup of sunflower kernels, or even tofu. Enjoy, and let me know if you try any new variations!
