I’m on a salad kick these days, especially because they are a great way to use up leftover ingredients, like a roasted chicken. This Guacamole Chicken Salad from Tasty Kitchen member Natalie Perry looked dreamy. It includes avocado and roasted chicken, two of my favorite things in the universe, plus a whole host of other delicious ingredients. Try this today!

Put several big spoonfuls over your favorite lettuce or on a slice of bread and dig in. You can use extra big lettuce leaves and make lettuce wraps or scoop it up with tortilla chips. This was light and delicious, a perfect lunch or picnic dish. Keep it on your list as the months get warmer!

This was delicious with tortilla chips. I minced up two cloves of garlic for an extra kick.
