paleo diet southwestern chicken salad


I have been experimenting with the Paleo diet plan to help my whole family lose weight. I love finding dishes like this one that are full of flavor. By using the new DelMonte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomato varieties, I am able to create a whole new palette of dishes that are rich in flavor, yet cut calories by not using traditional dressings and oils. The new Del Monte Southwestern-Style Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes are the perfect way to spice up main dishes and snacking recipes. The big thing about the Paleo diet is using vegetables and fruits without any processed foods. Del Monte canned tomatoes, fruits and vegetables contain the same essential nutrients as fresh varieties. The majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day, to ensure nutrients and flavor are locked in.

  1. That looks delish! I haven’t tried the Paleo Diet yet, but I have heard lots of great things about it.

  2. This recipe looks really good. I would like to try this in my weekly menu. I’m gonna add it to my grocery list! I think my kids will like it, although I am not too sure how they will do with the chipotle diced chile’s. I’ve used those a couple of times in other recipes and they either love it or hate it. I always love them!

  3. my fav is the superfruit Pear Chunks in Acai & Blackberry Juice Blend

  6. I like the petite diced tomatoes. Drained I use them in salads. Very easy & convenient. The juice I add to soups.

  9. I’m a huge fan of Del Monte products but I absolutely love their sliced peaches. And make a pretty good peach upside down cake or peach cobblers or peaches and ice cream.

  10. Our kids love their products – we usually buy the “Del Monte Orchard Select Sliced Cling Peaches” as well as others. This would be a good win.

  11. I like the Del Monte® Diced Tomatoes with Zesty Mild Green Chilies. I have used it many times and it makes great chili.

  12. In the comment section on the blog, tell me what your favorite product is

    Cherry Punch Halfpipe Tubes

    A fat-free, freeze-and-eat cherry punch treat you can feel good about serving to your kids. That’s because each box is made from 1 lb. of fruit.

  13. I like the tomatoes with the green chillers best. I put them in a beef stew I made yesterday it was great.

  14. My favorite is the Del Monte® Petite Cut® Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies – so glad they are a part of the giveaway!

  15. My favorite has always been the sliced pears. I can remember eating them and loving them as far back as two years of age!
