Healthy, high-protein avocado chicken salad recipe using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise! You can use sandwich bread, a bed of lettuce, pitas, crackers or wraps to go with this easy lunch or weeknight dinner idea.
How was your weekend? Mine was super busy and filled with family time. Saturday night I had my family over the house because my brother and sister-in-law were in town from Syracuse. We had a great time and celebrated my mom’s birthday with a delicious peanut butter pie with an Oreo crust made by my sister-in-law, Missy. I’m still drooling just thinking about it. Sunday I had my aunt and uncle over to see our house – they brought us lunch and shared funny stories about their 5 kids- always a great time! I’m also leaving for BOSTON this week! Mr. Wishes is going for a training and I am tagging along (with the greatest motivation being that he got us tickets for the Red Sox and Brewers game this weekend!) I’m a Yankee fan, but love baseball no matter what teams are playing. One of my goals in life is to atttend a game at every MLB stadium at some point in my lifetime.
I have to be honest, I didn’t expect to like this avocado chicken salad as much as I did, especially given the absence of mayonnaise. It was so delicious made with the Greek Yogurt! If you are an avocado lover and also love chicken salad (both of which I am pretty much obsessed with) then this recipe is for you. It tastes so good that you won’t even believe it’s healthy. I served these wraps with organic sweet potato chips – yum!
