Berry Delicious Avocado Chicken Salad
What is the first thing that pops into your head when I say SALAD? Boring? Lots of greens? No flavor? Too healthy? NO! A salad is a blank canvas for you to add fun flavors and deliciousness into a rewarding and satisfying meal. I absolutely love a “fun salad” and with all the beautiful produce available right now, it’s really easy to create one.
I went to Publix this week and filled my cart with fresh ingredients and made an incredible salad. And do you want to know the best part about this salad? Just by purchasing the ingredients we gave back to our local food banks. Eat Good. Do Good.
How did we help our local food banks just by shopping at Publix? Produce For Kids has teamed up with Publix again to support local Feeding America® food banks. All you have to do is look for Produce for Kids signage in the produce department now through June 27 to support the participating brands giving back to your local food banks.
Now, let’s create that Berry Delicious Avocado Chicken Salad, these are the ingredients that you will need:
Long Hothouse Cucumber
Chicken – I used rotisserie chicken
Bed of greens
For the homemade Raspberry Lime Vinaigrette Dressing you will need:
Fresh lime juice, so a few limes 😉
Extra virgin olive oil
Red wine vinegar
See why I choose to call my salad Berry Delicious? All the fresh berries, avocado, cucumber, almonds and chicken work so well together to give you fresh flavor explosion with lots of texture…resulting in a scrumptious salad that you will want to create again and again. Not to mention, this salad is loaded with protein and fresh produce…it’s everything you could possibly want in a salad.
