Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 lb. chicken, cooked, cubed and chilled (leftovers or rotisserie chicken is great for this!)
  • 1 ½ cups broccoli slaw (may substitute cabbage)

  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • ½ medium avocado, diced (optional)

  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Lime wedges

Dressing

Instructions

  1. Combine chicken, broccoli slaw, red peppers, almonds and green onions in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Prepare dressing. Place ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour dressing over salad and mix until chicken and vegetable mixture is completely coated.
  4. Fold in diced avocado, if using (note, this will turn brown after a day so if prepping ahead, add just before serving). 
  5. Serve with lettuce leaves, fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
