Apple, Chicken and Avocado Salad

This is just as perfect as your traditional chicken salad but we swapped out the mayo for avocado and added a light lime and herb dressing. This recipe is great for those following a Paleo nutrition plan, or those with egg sensitivities.

This recipe may take over your old chicken salad recipe.
