Chicken Avocado Salad
· 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded into large pieces
· 2 medium avocados, diced
· 2 medium tomatoes, diced (optional)
· 1 T + 1 T fresh squeezed lime juice
· salt, to taste (I didn’t use too much salt because you can always add more at the table.)
· 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
· 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (or chop it more coarsely if you prefer)
1. Shred the chicken apart until you have 2 cups of chicken shredded into fairly large chunks. Dice the avocados into medium-sized pieces, mix with 1 T of the lime juice, and season avocado with salt to taste. Thinly slice the green onion and finely chop the cilantro. Mix mayo and 1 T lime juice to make the dressing.
2. Put the chicken into a bowl large enough to hold all the salad ingredients. Add the sliced green onions and dressing and toss until all the chicken is coated with dressing. Add the avocado and any lime juice in the bottom of the bowl and gently combine with the chicken. Add tomatoes and chopped cilantro and gently mix into the salad, just until it is barely combined.
3. Serve inside crisp lettuce cups, or just eat it as a salad.
