Fresh, tasty, and delicious is how this 5-star, Avocado Chicken Salad is commonly described. Mrshartzell raves, “So delicious and easy! I could seriously eat this every day!” You’re not alone. We could, too. This particular recipe uses vinaigrette instead of mayonnaise but doesn’t lose its creamy texture, thanks to avocado. Salsa and fresh cilantro give this chicken salad its south-of-the-border flavors. So, instead of layering over a bed of greens, serve with tortilla chips for scooping and an added crunch. This recipe works for any week day lunch or even for a Cinco de Mayo celebration. You can also mix this quick and easy recipe up with some black beans or corn!
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add chicken and cilantro; toss to combine. Gently fold in salsa and avocado. Serve with chips.
