WW Recipe of the Day: Low Carb Chicken Avocado Salad
This chicken salad is another easy, healthy and delicious recipe, perfect for using up leftover cooked chicken. It's from The Short-Cut Cook: Make Simple Meals with Surprisingly Little Effort by Jacques Pépin.
In the recipe's notes, Jacques says that this chicken avocado salad is a great way to use leftover chicken. I couldn't agree more.
The tasty salad dressing would be delicious with leftover roast turkey or pork too.
The only change I made was to cut back on the oil from 3 tablespoons to 1, to make it a little more Weight Watchers friendly.
You'll want to Shred the chicken rather than cutting it with a knife. It looks nicer and the meat will absorb the dressing better.
