    I was asked today by the user citrusodaco for the recipe of the lunch I posted earlier.

    I don’t usually write down recipes and just put things together. Since I enjoyed what I made I went back to recreate it so I could take some notes this time.

    Avocado Chicken Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

    Approx 1 pound of chicken, cooked and diced
    ½ red onion, chopped
    2 avocados cubed
    2 tbsp minced cilantro (I used frozen, Dorot brand)
    2 tbsp lime juice
    2 tbsp salsa verde

    I made the dressing separately (so I could taste it) and poured it over the cut up ingredients and then mix together.

    Makes 3 cups or approximately 4 servings.
    You could use it over greens, as a sandwich filling, or on it’s own!
