Grilled Chicken and Avocado Salad

This post may include affiliate links.

This salad’s complimentary flavors create a delicious, subtle dish with nutrients in every bite. The white meat, which is much healthier than its red counterpart, is grilled simply, rubbed with only extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Together, they create an Italian flair. As you throw together the rest of the ingredients in the bowl, you will inhale the aromatic smell of freshly grilled skinny chicken with balsamic vinegar and avocado. Like all our salads, this one is skinny eating at its best.

    The recipe says it makes 6 servings but then it says ‘serving size, 4’ , what on earth does that mean? Four what?

      Hmmmmm, looks like we made a typo! I’ve corrected the recipe to read 6 servings and serving size is 1 1/2 cups! Sorry about the confusion, Frances!
