Cilantro Avocado Chicken Salad

This could be one of my new favorite recipes. You can eat this plain, on a sandwich, in a wrap, and so many other ways. It was such a delicious summer meal. My husband loved it as a sandwich and I loved it just plain. It is such a simple recipe, but boy does it fill you up!

Here are the ingredients:

- 1 rotisserie chicken (evens out to about 3-4 cups of pulled chicken)
-2 large diced avocados
-2 tbsp fresh lime juice (used separately througout the recipe)
-1/2 slice green onion
-3/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
-2 tbsp light mayo
-salt and pepper to taste

How to make the dressing:

Mix the 2 T of mayo and 1 T of fresh squeezed lime juice to make the delicious dressing.

Next dice up the avocado's and toss with 1 T of fresh squeezed lime juice.

Put the chicken in a medium-large size bowl and add the green onion. Pour dressing over chicken and onion and mix well to where it is coated in the dressing.

Next add the avocado and continue mixing.

Lastly, add the freshly chopped cilantro and mix well. You can serve right away or chill and save for later.
