Chicken-Avocado Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Carol in Oregon 2

I serve this a lot when we have hot weather. It's easy to prepare and can be prepared a couple of hours ahead of time and kept cold in the refrigerator. Serve hot garlic bread with this...the different tastes complement each other.

This is a very good tasting salad, with ingredients that go together well. The suggestion to serve it in avocado shells is not, in my opinion, a very good one. First of all, I don't think its really all that attractive. Next, maybe because I increased the celery considerably, it wouldn't fit in the fairly big avocado shells I had. Also because I do not really like having things that are inedible mixed up in my food, and lastly because I don't like taking extra time for things that are not useful. I do prefer the egg chopped and mixed in the salad. However, I would never subtract one star for this - half at most. And it gains a half for the lovely flavor. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. I am sure there are more artsy crafty people around who would agree with your serving advice.
