CHANNELING MY INNER JULIA CHILD

Hello again!

Today I am sharing my favorite recipe with you!

For some odd reason I have been craving avocado like no other the last two weeks, so today I was scrolling through my Pinterest feed and I saw the most delicious looking dish, and guess what one of the main ingredients was? You guessed it, avocado. I basically went crazy and got super happy and told my mom that I was going to make dinner tonight. Let me tell ya it was so good. Like wooooowwwwww. I also keep telling myself that I should probably figure out how to cook (I’m terrible at it) because one day I will move out and I will need to feed myself ha.

Here’s some pictures to make your mouth water 😉 (recipe below)

Chicken and Avocado Salad with Lime and Cilantro

Ingredients:
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded into large pieces (my mom and I think that this would taste just as good or even better if the chicken was grilled!!)
2 medium avocados, diced
1 T + 1 T fresh squeezed lime juice
salt, to taste (I didn’t use too much salt because you can always add more at the table.)
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (or chop it more coarsely if you prefer)
2 T mayo or light mayo

Instructions:

Shred the chicken apart until you have 2 cups of chicken shredded into fairly large chunks. Dice the avocados into medium-sized pieces, mix with 1 T of the lime juice, and season avocado with salt to taste.  Thinly slice the green onion and finely chop the cilantro.  Mix mayo and 1 T lime juice to make the dressing.

Put the chicken into a bowl large enough to hold all the salad ingredients. Add the sliced green onions and dressing and toss until all the chicken is coated with dressing.  Add the avocado and any lime juice in the bottom of the bowl and gently combine with the chicken.  Then add the chopped cilantro and gently mix into the salad, just until it is barely combined. This tastes good chilled and can be prepared in advance and put in the refrigerator overnight.

To all you who recognize this post and recipe it’s because it was posted on my other blog and I wanted to share it here on NINE OF 10 because it’s that good! Don’t worry I won’t be recycling any other posts!

This so yummy! I hope you try it out!

bon appétit
