Avocado & Cilantro Chicken Salad


Another chicken salad! Yup, I was one a bit of a chicken salad kick for a while. This is another one that is just slightly different in flavor for something different. I served this with some pita bread, a greek-style vegetable salad with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, and green pepper (see exact ingredients below) and a side of peaches for desert. This was a bit on the lighter side for lunch. To add some calories and make it more filling, add in some pesto or some quinoa to the salad.

Avocado & Cilantro Chicken Salad
Serves 10

  • 1/2 cup mayo (I use Primal Kitchen)

  • 1 cup greek lowfat plain yogurt

  • 4 oz fresh lime juice (about 2 large limes worth)

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped

  • pinch black pepper

  • 1/2 cup packed cilantro, chopped (20g worth)

  • 1/4 cup diced red onion (2 ounces worth)

  • 6 tablespoons avocado (about 1 half of avocado), 110g worth

  • 4 stalks celery, diced (6 ounces)

  • 1/4 cup carrots, shredded (2 ounces)

  • 2 pounds shredded chicken (7 cups) (see here for an easy way to cook it)

Combine the mayo, yogurt, sea salt, lime juice, garlic, and black pepper in a large bowl. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add in the rest of the ingredients- onion, cilantro, avocado, celery, carrot, and chicken and toss well to thoroughly coat the chicken.
