I got the idea off of a post I saw on pinterest, but other then a description there was no link to a avocado chicken salad recipe, so I tried and made one and it turned out REALLY GOOD. A nice alternative to a heavily mayo based chicken salad. The Avocado adds enough creaminess, you barely need the mayo at all.
Next time I make this I will use the fresh cilantro from the garden, but the plant wasn’t quite ready yet. I’m really looking forward to tasting the difference.
| Ingredients:1lb Chicken
1 Large Avocado
3 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp light mayo
1 tbsp fresh chopped Cilantro
3 Green Onions
Salt and Garlic Salt
| 1. Boil the chicken, let cool and pat dry. Then with a fork shred the chicken and set aside in large mixing bowl.2. Quarter and scoop out avocado and chop into small cubes. Add Avocado, lime juice and light mayo to bowl with chicken and mix thoroughly, mushing a lot of the avocado to give it a creamy texture.
3. Add sliced green onions and cilantro and combine into mixture
4. Add salt and garlic salt to taste.
This time we used it in sort of a soft taco form with lettuce, cheese and a corn and bean salsa which was good. But I can also suggest that it could be used as a dip with tortilla chips or spread on a large wrap and rolled with spinach or lettuce into a pinwheel sandwich. (I think that’s what I’ll try next )
