A New Way to Eat Chicken Salad
Here’s a new and healthier way to eat chicken salad if you’re trying to keep the “bad” fats out and the “good” fats in. This easy and tasty spread uses avocado instead of mayonnaise or salad dressing.
So for Foodie Friday, try something new on a whole grain bagel or slice of whole grain bread, in a wrap, or on a green salad.
Avocado Chicken Salad
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked
1 ripe avocado, mashed
1/4 c. finely diced onion
Juice of one lime
1/2 T. cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix onion, lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper into mashed avocado. Shred chicken and blend all ingredients together.
Yields 4 servings
See? I told you it was easy!
Tip: If you aren’t using the chicken salad up in one day, keep the pit from the avocado and place it in the covered dish for storage. It helps to keep the avocado mixture from turning brown.
