I discovered this creamy, limey chicken salad during Aimee Raupp’s Body Belief cleanse program—a superfood cleanse that reduces systemic inflammation for powerful healing. This recipe is brilliant: guac-ified chicken salad, brightened with the zing of green onions. It’s nourishing and purifying and so delicious it’ll stay in my permanent rotation. I love it over chopped romaine with olive oil, as a cleanse-approved lunch. Or have it on its own as a snack, pile it onto your favorite toast, or serve with an array of picnic salads and mixed greens.
1 to 1.5 cooked chicken breasts, cooled
1 large or 1.5 small avocados
2 green onions
handful of cilantro
juice of 1 lime (or to taste)
drizzle of olive oil
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
generous grind of sea salt
- Shred or chop the chicken. Mince the green onion and chop the cilantro.
- In a mixing bowl, combine avocado, lime, and salt and mash with a fork. Add the chicken, green onions, cilantro, garlic powder and olive oil and stir to combine. The avocado and olive oil should coat the chicken generously; add a little more chicken or a little more avocado if you need to adjust the texture. Taste and add lime and/or salt if desired.
