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 🙂
