If you’ve been traveling the paleosphere for any amount of time, I’m sure you’ve come across Bill and Hayley. Originally of the Food Lovers Primal Palate, and then later the Food Lovers Kitchen, these two have been a great inspiration of mine in terms of taking beautiful pictures of food that is not overly complicated or contrived, but still as satisfying as some of the SAD foods many of us grew up on.
Here’s my attempt at Haley’s Homemade Chicken Salad from the Food Lovers’ Primal Palate (recipe here). This is one of my favorite recipes, and I thoroughly recommend it. My one cautionary tale:
When making homemade mayonnaise, your choice of oil makes all the difference. I can’t find/afford a cup of macadamia oil, so I usually use 3/4 cup of coconut oil and 1/4 cup walnut oil. Unfortunately I ran out of those things and had to make up the difference with olive oil. DO NOT do that. The flavor isn’t miserable, but it does leave something to be desired.
