Chicken Avocado Salad with Honey Lime Dressing is such a fun summer salad!
It’s jam packed with healthy ingredients including arugula, spinach, and mango.
If you have homegrown tomatoes they would be fantastic to use in this Chicken Avocado Salad. If not, store bought will do and I usually buy cherry tomatoes as they taste sweet year round.
TIPS FOR MAKING Chicken Avocado Salad with Honey Lime Dressing
- You really need to utilize the full marinating time for this chicken avocado salad! The chicken needs to marinate for at least an hour. This will allow the chicken to better take on some of the lovely flavors!
- If you don’t want to cook this on an outdoor grill you can simply use a cast iron grill pan instead, it works perfectly!
- The dressing can be mixed up ahead of time, just make sure to remix it before serving if it’s been sitting for a while as it might separate.
- If you can’t find mango, you can substitute another fruit such as peach, strawberry, or even tangerines.
