Avocado Chicken Salad

This is my favorite chicken salad recipe. I love the bit of sweet you get from the dried cranberries,the crunch of the celery, and the creaminess of the avocado is perfect. I do this combination on a lettuce wrap for lunch, or bulk it up with a bunch of veggies on a spinach salad. Enjoy!

Avocado Chicken Salad
4 Cooked Chicken Breasts
2 Ripe Avocados
1 Stalk of Celery
1/2 C Dried Cranberries
1/4 C Avocado Oil
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper to taste

Dice chicken breast and avocado into bite size pieces and chop celery into very small dice.
  In a large bowl, combine diced avocado, chicken and dried cranberries.
 Add in avocado oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. The avocado will naturally mush down a bit while combining, but still leave some good size chunks.
 Eat immediately on a salad, plain, or in a lettuce wrap, or allow the salad to sit overnight for a better depth of flavor. Enjoy!


  1. This looks wonderful! I wanted to try it today since I thought we had all the ingredients until I noticed the avocado oil. Where do you find avocado oil? We are new to the Paleo lifestyle and still trying to figure out the best places to shop for these more uncommon ingredients. Thanks!

  2. I get most of my stuff from to be honest. Their prices are so much better than my local specialty shop that would have it. For the Avocado oil I use this:
    If you wanted to make it before you get the avocado oil, you could sub in Olive Oil or another kind of mild flavored oil you have on hand. Hope that helps!
