Chicken Cobb Salad With Avocado Dressing

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by GibbyLou

This is based on Smoked Chicken Cobb Salad from the Cooking Light Best Ever Slim-Down Recipes book. To simplify it, I modified it to remove the smoking of the chicken. This is quite a tasty salad. I love all the different flavors. I used a large clove of garlic in the dressing and it had a good bite. The avocado I used was about 1 cup diced.

What a nice recipe! Definitely delicious, attractive, and nice combination of flavors. Hubby said dinner was really good and appreciated having a salad here on a warm day. Served with recipe#439695 and the two complimented each other well. Thank you for sharing.
