A Little Time and a Keyboard: Refreshing Chicken Avocado Salad

Refreshing Chicken Avocado Salad

Friday, May 4, 2012

With all of the wonderful weather now and on the horizon, it is time to start thinking cool and refreshing salads! Last night, I made a really simple chicken and avocado salad. It is a great way to use up chicken leftovers and spice them up!


1 cooked chicken breast
1/4 cup chopped white onion
6-8 diced capellini tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
Juice of 2 limes
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tsp Iguana Jacks jalapeno pepper sauce
1 small peeled and diced avocado


Pull chicken into chunks.  Combine all ingredients except avocado in bowl. Fold the avocado gently into the mixture.

You can serve this with tortilla chips or eat in a tortilla.

Some notes: You can easily add more chicken to this recipe. I made it with one breast last night but I think that the mixture would have been fine with 2.  Also, you can try it with a little less lime juice and add more to your taste. I am a big lime fan so I went in with gusto!
