Avocado Chicken Salad Wrap – a perfect blend of avocado, Greek yogurt, chicken, celery, grapes, red onion & spices to make your lunch complete! This healthy recipe only takes a few minutes to whip up!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I love celebrating holidays but will admit I’m not that crafty or clever. I have friends that make green mint this or pistachio that. All these fun treat ideas and crafts. When it comes to St. Paddy’s in my house, my kids are doing well to get Lucky Charms for breakfast, a fruit rainbow for snack and this Avocado Chicken Salad Wrap for lunch!
What does Avocado Chicken Salad have to do with St. Patrick’s Day? Absolutely nothing! Except that it’s green. 😉
And it’s super delicious. So much so, that I ate most of the filling before it even made it into a wrap. Whoops! But don’t worry, I made it again so I could show it off to you. Isn’t it pretty?
The best part is that it’s quick to make and healthy to eat. The binding base to this healthy avocado chicken salad wrap is Greek yogurt and mashed avocado. But not just ANY avocado… a California Avocado!
I’m super excited to be working with the California Avocado Commission this year to promote their amazing avocados. You heard me. It’s finally avocado season!!! Wohoo!
