Avocado Chicken Salad

I love avocados.  Especially the avocados from Costco.  What is it with Costco and having the best produce?  My little boy loves chicken salad sandwiches for his lunches at school.  I decided to add some more ingredients to change it up a little and the result was fantastic!  I loved the avocado in this and it made the flavor on the sandwich amazing.  I was so excited that this turned out so yummy!

Review:  I added these ingredients to my liking.  You can always add more and less to what your heart desires. 🙂  I am already excited to make them again!

  1. YUM! Chicken salad is my favorite and avocado makes anything better 🙂

  2. I’ll bet you could use fat free plain yogurt in place of the mayonnaise to lower the fat content.

  3. How long would this last if I made a bunch and tried to store it? I know avocados don’t normally last long once they’ve been sliced.

    • Avocados need to be served fresh or they will brown. I made a pasta avocado salad yesterday and the avocados were brown by the evening. You could make everything else and dice the avocados and put them in right before you serve it. Let me know how you like it! 🙂

      • Did you know that once the avocado has been sliced or chopped, it can be stored in a covered container & won’t go brown if you just set the avocado pit in the container with the sliced avocado? It works. We have stored it for 2-3 days with no browning.

  4. I would love the recipe, but can’t get it to print. Help

    • I’m so sorry. I switched to WordPress recently and and have to convert every single recipe to a recipe card and print option. I haven’t gotten to this one yet. You can try copying and pasting it for now. 🙂
