It’s always after the weekend, when Mondays roll around, that I re-dedicate myself to eating better. I always fall off the wagon on the weekend. No matter how determined I am I cave and indulge in cookies or late night popcorn with a bowl of chocolate chips. Those two = MAJOR WEAKNESS for me.
So Monday is here and I’m back on the wagon. This Cilantro-Lime Avocado Chicken Salad is guilt free but has lots of flavor. Perfect for a lighter lunch or dinner. We like to eat it plain, wrapped up in lettuce, or you can make a wrap or open faced sandwich with it.
Chicken, avocado, celery, and cilantro are tossed together in a simply dressing made of Greek yogurt, a tad bit of light mayo, lime juice and cumin. It’s just my kind of simple, healthy salad.
Serve it in the avocado shells for a fun presentation ↑↑ 🙂
