Avocado Cilantro Chicken Salad

#recipe #chicken #avocado #savory
This chicken salad was a delicious twist on a traditional chicken salad!  If you love cilantro, this will be a winner in your book!  This was the first time I have tried using an avocado in chicken salad instead of mayo & even though the chicken salad doesn’t stay pretty, it sure does taste good!  I will definitely continue using avocados.  If you haven’t tried it either, you really should :)

    I would have to omit the cilantro- maybe sub parsley? But this sounds so good! I love avocado. I love to just slice an avocado in half, sprinkle it with kosher salt, and spoon it right out of the peel. 😉
