Strawberry Avocado and Chicken Salad

Published by on

I love avocados. Their buttery richness and creamy smooth texture make just about everything taste better.
I often run into a little problem with these gems, however. Because of my professed love of all things avocado, I tend to purchase them in bulk at 4-6 in a bag. While this is a great money saver in theory, my problem arises with the ripening factor. I buy a bag, eagerly await for them to soften, and then suddenly I have SIX avocados ready to go at the same time. It’s a good thing they’re so versatile, or this would really be difficult.

Also, anticipate more avocado recipes in your near future.

Today I am excited to share with you this elegant yet simple strawberry, avocado, and chicken salad. Easy to throw together, this salad is a chop and drop kind of meal. Slice up a handful of sweet strawberries, add in some ripe avocado, dice up some cooked chicken, and drizzle your favorite vinaigrette over the top. Add a sprinkling of toasted slivered almonds and you’re ready to go. The different sweet and savory flavors combined with several different textures makes this meal deliciously fun to eat.
