Avocado Chicken Salad for Two

At this time of year a salad is often the full meal around here.  Avocado and chicken go well together...and with fresh seasonal veggies thrown in, it's a great combo. Add a dinner roll...find some good company...and enjoy it out on the front porch!

  • 4 cups mixed salad greens (or baby spinach leaves)
  • several slices red onion, coarsely chopped
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup chopped cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup corn (or kernels cut from 1 cob)
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
  • 1 avocado, halved and sliced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Sunflower seeds or roasted pine nuts to sprinkle on top, optional


  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1. Place salad greens in a large bowl. Add remaining salad ingredients.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the salad and toss.
