Chicken and Avocado Salad

I don’t know about you but I love a good salad. There is just something about a good salad that makes me feel healthy and good for eating healthy. There are many ways to make a salad unhealthy, but this salad is not unhealthy. The addition of protein makes it even better. This salad does require a little bit of preparation but it is definitely worth it. This recipe is also good for families because it can be hard to get children to eat vegetables. Enjoy!
