FAVORITE CHICKEN SALAD


I guess everyone has their favorite version of this American classic. This is mine. I make it whenever we buy a rotisserie chicken, which is pretty often.

An interesting twist on the chicken salad that I haven't seen. Love the avocado and juice. Will have to try it!

I just love the addition of avocado. I could eat avocado every single day and never tire of it.

Oh wow, that certainly looks good. I make one with curry and grapes but I will definitely try your version. Love the apples and avocado...

What a great-sounding recipe! I've never seen avocado in a chicken salad. What a great idea!! I love avocado, plus it's a great way to get Omega-3s. Yum!!
