I think it is past time for a recipe post! My cousin Megan gave me this recipe, and I believe it came from Martha Stewart originally. We made it for dinner the other night. I know I do not take pretty food pictures, but trust me, it puts an awesome spin on the traditional Chicken Salad Sandwich recipe. MMMM.
Avocado Chicken Salad
Blend all in blender or food processor …
1 cup buttermilk
1 scallion (white and light green only)
1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
3 1/4 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 avocado, diced small
3/4 cup avocado dressing
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all and serve on bread or toast
I made buttermilk using milk and vinegar. We didn’t have a scallion or shallot. So we did without. The only change I would make would be less mint leaves next time around. We just poured the extra dressing on along with the salad.
Hope you enjoy this fresh, tasty, warm-weather meal!
