The other day I had some avocados that I needed to use up and I decided to make myself something yummy for lunch. This is a quick and easy recipe, but is so tasty you could certainly use it for entertaining or for a wedding or baby shower.
Chicken, Avocado & Grape Salad
by Lindsay Wilkes from The Cottage Mama
1 large, ripe avocado
1 large bone-in chicken breast, cooked or roasted
1/2 cup grapes, quartered
1/2 fresh lemon
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper, to taste
French or Italian crusty bread
Remove avocado from skin and remove pit. Dice or cube avocado into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Shred chicken from chicken breast. You can roast one in the oven seasoned with salt and pepper or you can shred part of a store-bought roasted chicken.
Combine the avocado, chicken and grapes in a mixing bowl. Fold to combine. You do not want to break up the avocado too much as you still want it to be in chunks, so be careful not to smash it. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon on top of the chicken, avocado and grape mixture. Season with more salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Fold again to combine.
To serve, spoon salad mixture on top of a toasted piece of sliced Italian bread or half of a french baguette. To finish, drizzle with olive oil and another squeeze of lemon. You could also serve this on top of a bed of leafy greens with a simple vinaigrette.
