Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad

Posted in : Ethnic, Meals, Salad, Side Dish on by : rereinke@yahoo.com Tags: , , ,

I was inspired to make this salad when I received fresh Florida avocados in the mail! If you have never tried one it is a must and very different form a California Haas avocado. The ones you buy in the supermarket here in Missouri are all California grown. Florida avocados are the larger and have smooth-skin. The biggest nutritional difference between California and Florida avocados is their fat content……California ones have 4.6 grams of fat versus a Florida one only has 3 grams of fat to the same portion.

Ingredients:

1 Florida avocado cubes

1/2 can of black beans drained and rinsed

1/2 bag frozen corn cooked and cooled

10-12 pickled jalapenos (optional)

10 grape tomatoes cubed

2 bags of sweet bliss lettuce combination (can use romaine also)

2 grilled chicken breasts sliced (may also use frozen chicken breasts)

tortilla chips for garnish (may also crush up in the salad)

For the dressing

There are two options:  In the past a mix of sour cream and salsa equal parts. This time however I used Sriracha Ranch form Trader Joes.

I really enjoy spicy dishes and this dressing does not disappoint. If you do want a milder version I would recommend the sour cream salsa mixture.

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
