    I am passionate about this salad! I crave this salad. I work 12 hr shifts and often make it to take to work dividing the ingredients into three individual containers. Then I pack a whole avocado a hard boiled egg in my bag each day with the dressing in a little container. Assemble and eat. Sometimes I add grape tomatoes, veggies or toasted almonds. But it really is a perfect salad just as it is.

    I made it as is. The recipe is packed with flavor. I love mayo so I was leery of the lemon vinaigrette but glad I kept mayo out. The whole family gave it 5 stars. Surprisingly, the small leftover avocados didn’t turn brown overnight. Yes, the dressing seemed salty if that is all you eat but keep in mind the dressing goes over the entire dish. My tweak would be adding more corn.

    Soooo good! I poached 3 chicken breasts in well seasoned liquid (chicken broth, white wine, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cooled and shredded them the night before I made the recipe. Upped the remaining ingredients slightly because I used 3 chicken breasts. Made the salad in the morning and chilled it for 3 hrs before whipping it out at our picnic. It was a hit! Served with slider buns but I ate my serving “as is”. Absolutely delicious! Love your recipes, Natasha!

        Hi Hannah, avocado starts to brown quickly so it’s probably best to eat this within 2days. To store, cover the chicken avocado salad with plastic wrap directly over the surface of the salad (keeping the air out will prevent the browning of the avocados) and refrigerate.

    Hi Natasha,

    I made this last night for my wife and I. I added 4 chopped up hard boiled eggs to it. One word.

    Deeeeeeelicious!

    Will have the leftovers tonight in a wrap.

    When I make this again (and I will for visitors), I am thinking I’ll have a bowl of walnuts and a bowl of dried cranberries on the table to add as toppers.

    Thanks so much for this recipe!!

    Cheers,
    Gil

    Love your recipes and want to try this salad, but it has a lot of sodium, is there a way to reduce it?

    Cooked with kids for a Memorial Weekend gathering today and made three dishes from your site. This was the 3rd time we made this and got so many compliments. We sometimes add cherry tomatoes. Also made the tres leches for a girl who said the one she had at a Mexican restaurant was not good but loved yours. And we made the cream puffs and guests were impressed. Thank you!

    This salad is a family favorite! We have added a can of rinsed black beans, and swap out the dill for one bunch of chopped cilantro. I like to add some diced jalapeño to my portion. I think we may add pepitas next.

    This is simply great. I’m a fan of your website & recipes.

    I don’t see where this recipe says how many it’s serves? I imagined 4 ( size of your famy)

    I have to serve 12 people. Would I triple it?

    Plus what best way to shred rotisserie breast? Maybe show us that sometime .

    Kind regards
    Dot

      Ho Dot! Thank you so much for sharing that with me! The serving size can be found at the beginning of the print-friendly recipe card (located at the bottom of the recipe post). The nutrition label shows counts “per serving.” This recipe serves 6 as a side. For 12 people, as a side, I would double it. Hope that helps! To shred chicken breast, you can use two forks and rip it apart or a mixer works too! Once the chicken is cold, make sure you remove the bones, turn your mixer on low speed and slowly mix away until shredded, don’t overdo it though! I hope this helps!

      I buy my rotisserie chicken from Meijer and they always sell some chickens shredded. Not sure if you live near a Meijer.

    Hi Natasha !
    Your recipes are great especially the salads . I have observation though. In your nutrition facts portion, may I request please include serving portion sizes. I know that number of serving portion in 1 recipe is already mentioned , but it would help to know the serving portion sizes too.
    Im forever grateful that you share good recipes.

    Guess how many times I have made this recipe this week…THREE! 3 times..
    oh my goodness absolutely divine!! I use chicken thighs (cooked in salt water for 15 min), and add slightly more lemon juice and a tad more salt and served it with pita bread…O.M.G.! My family can’t get enough and I’m tired of cleaning the chicken haha SO good!!!

    Hi Natasha!

    I was very excited to try this as a cool dinner after a hot day in Texas. I’m almost positive the issues are of my own doing- rotisserie chicken breast, bacon, lime juice and salt in the dressing made for a salty salad. I plan to use lemon juice and cook my own chicken next time and maybe wait on the salt in the dressing until everything is mixed up. I enjoy you and your recipe videos!

      I haven’t tried storing this for more than 2-3 days but you can store leftovers by covering chicken avocado salad with plastic wrap directly over the surface of the salad (keeping the air out will prevent browning of the avocados) and refrigerate.
