Avocados aren’t just for guacamole, and this chicken salad highlights all the versatility, rich flavors and health benefits that the amazing green fruit has to offer. Chopped avocado — and all the healthy fats and fiber that comes with it — is mixed with lean chicken breast, fresh Honeycrisp apples, tart dried cranberries, and crunchy chopped walnuts to create a potent salad. Spicy Greek yogurt and lemon juice combine with the avocado to make a creamy sauce when mixed. Substitute tofu and alternative yogurt to make it vegan.

This nutritious salad can be eaten alone, on a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich. Remember to cover the leftovers with plastic wrap placed on top of the salad to prevent the avocado from browning.
