The Localist: The Salsa Texan’s Cranberry Pecan White Chicken Salad

Dig in.

The Salsa Texan, out of Arlington, specializes in more than chicken salad. Their main products are, as their name suggests, a few different salsas, two types of queso, guacamole, and baked tortilla chips. And while they’re all worth a try, their chicken salad is where it’s at.

The company’s founder has type two diabetes and began making the products years ago as a way to be able to enjoy his favorites and maintain his health. As the success of those products grew, he added more items like five cheese pimento cheese, Texas caviar, and cranberry pecan white chicken salad.

All products are organic, gluten free and GMO free. The chicken salad is one of the best pre-made salads I have ever had. The ingredients are white chicken meat, salt, lemon juice, pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar, poppy seeds, cranberries, mayo, and celery. The combination of all these flavors makes for a light yet hearty chicken salad. All products are available daily at Market Provisions Co. in the Dallas Farmers Market and online.
