This Avocado Lime Chicken Salad takes a twist on a traditional chicken salad, and we love it! The avocado adds a nice creamy texture, and you can’t go wrong with a lime-cilantro flavor. This salad is so tasty, and you can do a lot with it. Serve it alone, in a wrap, on bread, or in countless other ways. This recipe makes a great side, main dish, or a nice snack during the day.
