Chicken Club Salad

Entree Salad Club Sandwich Salald IThis is how the simple cook rolls for an easy weeknight supper. I adapted this refreshing salad from my darling friend Katie Lee‘s The Comfort Table, 2008. I think I adore her so because she’s down to earth and honestly grew up in the kitchen. AND the fact that she and a sweet young friend of mine (knock knock Teryn Elizabeth) look so much alike. They are both natural beauties! Dance with this one.

Breast meat from 4 cooked chicken breasts
6 slices pre cooked smoked bacon
1 ripe avocado
3 Tbs fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup diced sweet onion
1/2 cup fat free mayonnaise
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
2 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 t black pepper

2 tomatoes, cut into wedges

Chop chicken into cubes.

Heat bacon in microware according to directions.
Drain on paper towels.
