Avocado Chicken Salad

Growing up, chicken salad seemed to show up at every family gathering. But cooking it for my kids never really went over well. When I discovered this recipe, which added some “slime appeal” (that was healthy to boot) it was a smashing success—for both the adults and kids. This is great as dip with crackers or pretzel thins, or paired with tomato and lettuce on your favorite bread or croissant.
