    Starrynews's Note:

    A light, refreshing recipe! It is adapted from a recipe found on one of those cards in the grocery store. Pairs quite well with cilantro lime rice. 1 hour of the prep time accounts for the time needed to marinate the chicken. Add more cayenne pepper if you like it spicy!

      Loved this. I don't care for raw onions, so used Garlic Chives from my herb garden. I also added a dash of garlic powder. Didn't notice the garlic flavor, and next time would use a little more cayenne pepper. Served with Lime-Cilantro brown rice.

      Very light and flavorful! I marinated the chicken for about 2 hours and then cooked as directed. I did cook the onions with the chicken (don't like raw onions) and left out the cilantro (do NOT like) but it was still flavorful! I liked that the cayenne pepper didn't make it too spicy since I cannot handle the heat. Will be a good salad to make in the summer when it is too hot to eat anything heavy. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Feb 2010.

      A lovely summer salad! I made as directed but marinated both the chicken and the tomato/onion salad overnight, then cooked the chicken in the morning for lunch at the office. The avocado, onion, and tomato portion was spectacular - but I did feel like the chicken was missing a little something. Perhaps I didn't have quite enough lime juice, or split the marinade evenly and the chicken missed out, because it just tasted a little bland. But the marinade on the fresh tomatoes and onions with some chopped avocado was good enough to eat as a standalone! I will definitely try this recipe again and maybe add a little more cayeene or some red pepper flakes to the chicken to kick it up.
