Heirloom Tomato, Avocado, and Chicken Salad

This salad is one of our favorites in the summer. It is very easy to make and the kids love it. The thing I love the most about it is that you can make the chicken ahead the night before so you don’t have to cook two nights in a row. We just grill an extra pound of chicken the night before. Summer should be all about simple, fresh dinners.

  • 1 pound grilled chicken
  • 3 pounds of heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 avocados
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Cut chicken, tomatoes, and avocado into bite-size pieces. Mix in a large serving bowl. Stir together lime juice, cilantro, and oil in a separate bowl or cup. Pour over salad. Mix. Let stand for at least 10 minutes. Add salt as desired.

I told you it was simple and it is delicious. The perfect dinner for a hot summer day.
