Easy Chicken Avocado Salad
Easy is good right? This easy chicken avocado salad is just that. If you want to you can add cooked quinoa or rice to it as well. Personally I find it perfect just the way it is :)
2 large chicken breasts,* shredded or chopped
2 medium avocados
1 cup corn
6 oz Bacon, cooked and chopped
¼ cup Chives or green onion, chopped
2 Tbsp chopped Dill
2 hard boiled eggs, cut in quarters, (optional)
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp lemon zest
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sea salt, or to taste
⅛ tsp black pepper
Dice or shred the 2 large cooked chicken breasts and place into a large mixing bowl. Peel and pit 2 avocados, slice into bite-sized pieces and add to the mixing bowl.
Add 1 cup of cooked corn (freshly cooked corn is best), toss in ¼ cup chopped green onion, chopped bacon, and 2 Tbsp fresh Dill.
Add dressing ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine. Drizzle over your salad and toss to combine. Serve with slices of hard boiled egg if desired.
Notes: *You can use rotisserie chicken or cook your own chicken breast.
