What are Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwiches?  Instead of mayo, we used avocado salsa, which has all the flavor and creaminess of avocado but with no prep!  It makes an amazing chicken salad that's great as is, but we like it on thick slices of Italian bread with fresh red onion and cilantro (maybe add some slices of crispy bacon, too?).  Or you can wrap in tortillas or serve in lettuce cups for keto-friendly chicken salad- there really is no wrong way to serve it.  This Avocado Chicken Salad recipe is ready to eat in only 10 minutes, making it a great option for lunch or busy weeknights!

  • 3/4 cup Pace® Avocado Salsa- Mild
