mayo and dairy-free chicken salad

avocado chicken sandwich

Yesterday’s classic minestrone soup was quite the hit, so how about another recipe with ingredients that anyone can find in any grocery store?


This easy chicken salad has only 5 ingredients and none of those five is mayonnaise, sour cream, or yogurt… no dairy and no mayo!

I’ve been using avocado on sandwiches instead of mayo…I think it’s lower in calories, has healthy fats, and it’s better for you! Yummy looking salad, pinning now and making later!
