Cinco de Mayo Chicken Salad
Here's a great lunch to make on Cinco de Mayo or at any time. It's a savory, not-too-spicy salad of chicken, avocado, red bell pepper and carrot seasoned with cumin and cilantro, all in a creamy dressing.
To make this a special lunch, we fried up fresh corn tortilla chips, a fairly quick process. The fresh, crispy chip is a perfect compliment to this delicious salad.
In a separate bowl, combine the chicken, carrots, red bell pepper, onion, avocado and cilantro.
Pour the dressing over the chicken and vegetables and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.Makes about 4 servings.
Prep time: 20 minutes; Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes
