A nice refreshing salad for summer. I mixed everything together except the lettuce and avocado, so that I could make and refrigerate it in advance. I added the lettuce and avocado to individual servings. I took leftovers to work for my lunch without the lettuce and avocado, and it was still very good.

This was good & very easy, a tasty way to use up left-over chicken. Love the avocados. For salad dressing used Ken's Olive Oil & Vinegar Dressing & added 1/2 t Italian herbs. NOTE; I've increased my original rating from 4 to 5 stars; I now think I inadvertently used too much cilantro the first time.
