Low Carb Chicken Salad is a healthy spin on my traditional Southern Chicken Salad, but with a few tweaks to reduce the carbs.
I used a Paleo Mayonnaise to make my low carb chicken salad as it has 0g carbs which makes it a perfect choice for this recipe. While there is a little red onion in it to add some flavor, the carb count tops out at only 2g per serving, or 1g net carbs if you subtract the dietary fiber.
