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 small bowl, stir together the sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon or lime juice, cumin, salt, white pepper and tabasco. This mixture is the salad dressing, so taste it and adjust the seasonings, if desired.
- 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.
