Straight up? I hate mayonnaise. Like really hate it.
So basically I've never liked chicken salad or egg salad.
Until I found a genius idea, of course, on Pinterest.
Because avocados? I LOVE.
This chicken salad has zero mayo. Instead, I use a combination of Greek yogurt and avocado and it is creamy and delicious, and added in some dried cherries for a burst of chewy sweetness. I used a good amount of Greek yogurt (2% because it's less tart), you certainly could adjust the amount down if you would like!
Also, I used Trader Joe's pre-grilled chicken breast. Because it was that kind of day. And it was also delicious.
Avocado Chicken Salad
(3 servings - 1/2 cup each: 188 calories per serving per MyFitnessPal Recipe Builder)
1 medium ripe avocado
1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt
6 oz. chopped up or shredded chicken breast
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup dried cherries
Scoop the avocado out of it's skin and into bowl. Juice the lime over the avocado and mash with a fork until creamy. Add in the greek yogurt, chicken, salt, pepper, and dried cherries and stir until well combined.
(Side note - it does make three servings, and even with the lime juice, the avocado still turns a bit brown in the fridge however it still tastes delicious!)
Serve on a wrap with some lettuce or just on a bed of lettuce, would even be delicious with pita or pita crips!
