Willow Tree Farm chicken salad is my absolute favorite brand of store bought chicken salad! I was extremely excited when they reached out asking me if I wanted to try their two new products. I am a huge chicken salad fan and make it often. It is a quick and easy meal, especially if you use store bought rotisserie chicken, and it makes enough to last you the entire week. It is a great lunch to pack for work or for your children to take to school and also makes a great game day snack serve while watching your favorite team >> GO PATS! <<
You can find my chicken salad that I make using Greek yogurt here. What intrigued me about Willow Tree Farms was their new flavors!
- The Avocado Chicken Salad is the first product made with Avèyo, a new avocado-based mayo alternative comprised simply of Hass avocado, white vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, and lime juice. With 70% less fat and 50% fewer calories than leading chicken salads, this better-for-you option is a great way to get into a healthy lunch routine without sacrificing flavor or taste.
- The Sriracha Chicken Salad adds a spicy, tangy flavor to Willow Tree Farm’s family favorite Original Chicken Salad. With an added hearty dash of the wildly popular chili-based condiment this is an instantly addictive accompaniment to casual summertime favorites from crackers to crudités and a sophisticated surprise for sandwiches and leafy green salads.
The first thing that caught my eye about the Avocado Chicken Salad was that it has >> NO MAYO << in it. I personally always swap the mayo for Greek yogurt because I cannot taste a difference in the final dish. Avocados are a heart healthy fat and I eat them regularly! I love the addition of dried cranberries for an extra pop of flavor.
If you like a little heat to your chicken salad than the Sriracha chicken salad is for you! I put hot sauces on the majority of my dishes so I loved the kick this had.
These chicken salads make great snacks or lunches. If you want to skip the carbs swap out the crackers or bread for some celery sticks!
I am excited to have new chicken salad varieties to add to my lunch routine. My favorite is definitely the Avocado Chicken Salad because of the swap of mayo for avocado. This swap makes it fit into my nutrition plan and helps me to continue my clean eating lifestyle while not sacrificing any flavor or taste!
