I think what makes this avocado chicken salad the best alternative to a meal, is having all that your body needs in a bowl. Protein, vitamins, minerals, and of course Avocado is known for its heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, besides the amazing different texture of vegetables.

The dressing is simple, but it enhances the flavor of the vegetables used in this salad. If you are not used consuming avocado, then I suggest that you make sure that the dressing seasoning is to your liking, avocado is creamy and a little on the sweet side, if you don’t like that hint of sweetness in your salad, add more lime juice or salt.

How to make an avocado chicken salad

To make this salad a great treat, make sure that the avocado is firm but not rock hard. (hmmm, I’m not sure how to describe this for you!) Well, it should be ripe but not mushy. Using a soft avocado will ruin the flavor of the salad.

The avocado chicken salad is best consumed the same day. The lime juice in the dressing will prevent the avocado from turning dark, but it won’t be effective for long. I suggest that you prepare the dressing and the chicken ahead of time but cut the avocado a few minutes before serving. Keep the salad in the fridge to maintain flavor and texture.

I’d suggest that you use fresh ingredients when making an avocado chicken salad but if you must, use canned corn instead of fresh, the taste will be the same.
