Pistachio Pesto Chicken Salad

It’s tricky to make a truly delicious compliant chicken salad because typically, the little bit of sugar in regular mayo is a key ingredient that’s essential for deliciousness. But I’ve spent quite some time perfecting this chicken salad that requires Pistachio Pesto MAGIC ELIXIRS, Whole30 mayo, and Marinated Onions MAGIC ELIXIRS, which as many of you know are staples for me and will likely become so for you too.

  6. Do the pisctachios have to be raw?

    1. Defintely better if they are, not a disaster if they are not. But if you are doing Whole30 and can’t find raw pistachios, make sure to read the label so you can confirm that they are compliant.

  7. OMG………a taste of heaven. I want to eat this EVERY DAY. Thank you from my tummy and beyond!!
