Avocado Chicken Salad

The hardest thing about the Paleo Diet (in my books) is the elimination of dairy. I really missed the creamy texture if cheese.  That is until I discovered my love of Avocados!  They have all the rich fatty creaminess I missed.  I started adding avocado to every salad I ate.  It's like pure creamy heaven.  What I love to do is use Avocado anywhere I would like to use creamy cheese,  my first stop was Mayo.  While I do make my own Paleo Mayo, its time consuming and I won't use it once its stored due to it having raw eggs. I don't need a fancy recipe to use Avocados either. I will dice it and add it to just about anything.  Dishes like Taco's and Chili now must have small diced avocado on top instead of the traditional cheese.

Where am I going with sharing all of this? Avocados from Mexico’s Website, of course! Because of my love of Avocado's and the fact that this blog simply must feature everything I personally love, we have partnered with Avocados From Mexico.  If you want more Avocado recipe inspiration than you simply must  visit their “Recipes from Avocado Lovers” section.
