And let me tell you, the avocado did not disappoint in this recipe either! I loved the way that the chicken salad turned out. I will admit that after I took these pictures, I added the 3rd chicken breast because I felt that avocado was overpowering the dish and I really wanted the chicken to be the star. So yours may look a little less green, which is definitely okay! I also think that adding celery, craisins or grapes would be a great addition to the chicken salad – I can’t eat any of those unfortunately otherwise I would have definitely played around with those additions as well. If you are looking for your next side dish to bring to a party or just a light and healthy lunch for yourself, then look no further – this is it!
