This AIP compliant avocado chicken salad has us dreaming of warmer weather and picnics. Light and airy, the avocado stands in for the classic mayonnaise as a healthy, allergen free alternative.
If you are crunched for time, you could use leftover cooked chicken to be in and out of the kitchen in just minutes. This version is AIP compliant but if you can tolerate it, add in black pepper to taste and then enjoy!
