Chicken Avocado Tomato Salad

Do you guys eat many salads during the summer?? I am trying to do better about putting more vegetables into my diet. I’m really good about making sure the kids have a colorful plate and full of nutrition but when it comes to my plate, well who am I kidding, most of the time I am just eating what is left on the kids plates, lol!

But I’ve decided that I need to make my own plate and actually sit down to eat this summer! Even if that means making something a little different from what I am serving my kids. If you guys know me by now, you know how much I hate to make several different dishes just to cater to everyone’s taste at the dinner table, but I’m not getting any younger and I just can’t eat like a kid anymore!

If you are looking for some more great weeknight meals try one of these plans:

  1. Spicy Chicken TacosHomemade Pico de gallo, Guacamole, Quick and Easy Refried Beans
  2. Simple Marinade for Chicken, Lemon Parmesan Roasted Broccoli, fresh fruit
  3. Grilled Balsamic Chicken Salad, and a simple side salad

This Chicken Avocado Tomato Salad is a quick and easy meal that's great for any night of the week! It's a no cook meal so it won't heat up your house and it's full of flavor!

Tips for this Chicken Avocado Tomato Salad:

  1. This salad is meant to use up whatever leftover chicken you have on hand. Leftover rotisserie chicken is great for this and the chicken in these pictures is from this Sweet BBQ Rub for Chicken post.
  2. This recipe is for 2 but if you are making for 1 you will need to store that cut avocado for later. The best way to do this is to leave as much of the avocado covered by its natural skin. Leave the pit in and tightly wrap in plastic wrap making sure to seal out as much air as possible. It will discolor slightly in 48 hours but it will still be good to eat.
  3. Feel free to use lemon juice in place of lime juice and feel free to switch out the basil for cilantro.

This Chicken Avocado Tomato Salad is a great dinner for any night of the week. It's full of flavor, uses leftover chicken so it's a great no cook meal!

This salad is a great low carb option!
