Recipe: Chicken and Avocado Salad with Skinny Creamy Dressing

Chicken and Avocado Salad with Skinny Creamy Dressing

Have I ever mentioned how much I love salads? If it weren’t for salads, I seriously would not know where I will be. I usually have a salad for lunch almost every day and I can honestly say they are a huge part of my weight loss.

The thing with salads is that you can add just about anything calorie appropriate and still have a large filling lunch that will satisfy your hunger. I like to use grilled protein on my salad, mostly chicken. Add some greens, tomatoes, avocados, top it with a skinny dressing and call it a lunch.
