Don’t you love it when two of your favorite things come together in perfect harmony? Things like your favorite song on the radio and being in the car alone, hitting all of the green lights when you’re in a hurry, or the perfect concoction of chicken and avocado? I know, I know…these things rarely happen, and I’m sorry to say that I can’t help you with the traffic lights. I can, however, hook you up with the perfect summer combination in this Avocado Chicken Salad! It’s become one of my favorite summery dinners – especially if I can make it with at least a few of the ingredients right out of my own garden (though I haven’t yet figured out how to grow avocados in the Oklahoma climate). Everyone in my family goes back for seconds on this dish, and sometimes, when they aren’t looking, I might indulge in a third helping! ~ Tracy
