I enjoy October!

Yesterday I wrapped and wrapped and wrapper - and I must say I am not a very good wrapper. Oh well.

And I have had a couple people say they can't leave a comment and one can't follow me - are any of y'all having these issues?


Now I do have some friends who aren't my followers and that don't have a blog - believe it or not. And this recipe is from one of my longest (1978) and sweetest and dearest friend - she has been with me threw it all and she's still here. lol Hi Jean!

Now this recipe is from her. And I have tested it. It is nothing short of delicious and healthy - I don't mind healthy if it is delicious.

Maybe you will enjoy it too.

Chicken Avocado Salad

½ c. plain yogurt (I used no- fat Greek)

1 T. onion (I used a few sliced green onions)

1 T. lemon juice

1 tsp. garlic salt

3 drops hot sauce

1 ½ c. cooked chicken

1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1 med. ripe avocado

1 med. tomato

Mix

Serve with mini pita pocket bread and shredded lettuce.

THIS IS GREAT - hope you try it and enjoy it.



It looked like this - but I used pita and shredded lettuce, but this looks great too!

That looks delicious. I am a huge fan of chicken salad and love to try different varieties.

And I don't know why, but I just feel healthier when I'm eating something crammed in a pita.

Looks delicious. Next time avocados are on sale, I'll try this. (They are an exorbant price here in Atlantic Canada!)

And thank you for yesterdays hymn list. I loved it.

Jill said...

Looks really good! Thanks for sharing it.

No fair making me hungry for lunch at 6:30 AM! Looks yummy.

Granny Annie said...

I have been looking for a light lunch for guests coming on Wednesday. This looks perfect. Do you know if the avocado turns brown if this is made in advance?

I have been following your blog but not commenting because I didn't want to get in the way of your contest participants. That was a very nice group of prizes you offered.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I'm so saving this recipe! We just harvested our chickens so to speak, so I'll be looking for creative recipes to cook!

I just wish the price of avocados would go down - they've been outrageous here for months now.

Sandra said...

our avocado tree that hubby grew from a seed is dropping the biggest we have ever seen. he loves them and would like this recipe. i can't eat them at all, he even talked me into tasting one yesterday that he was eating with salt on it. it is just like onions, i can't eat them either. but he would love this recipe. now if only he had a wife who would make it for him. no problems with me making comments.

Janie Fox said...

the salad looks great. I have had no issues with comments. I had a reader say she has to comment through blogger reader for hers to work on mine though? hmm. What are you wrapping or did you mean rapping? Word up.

Flora said...

TexWisGirl said...

try switching your comment placement to 'pop-up window'. 'embed below post' is the worst for causing problems!

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I am having chicken salad for dinner tonight. Hubby is at our son's football game that is away and I don't make the trip for the away games, too much on my back. Never ever thought to use avocados! And too funny on my pot roast recipe being the same way you cook yours! Hope your day was good. Like the new look of your blog!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I love chicken salad, this looks great-thanks:@)

The Boston Lady said...

I love the new look of your blog for October! What you KNOW someone who doesn't blog!?!? LOL, I have one friend in RL who blogs - the rest probably think we are nuts. You are sweet to do all that wrapping - I still don't think I should get anything since I didn't put forth any effort! Ann

Belle said...

I did have trouble following someone, but it was fixed. I did have trouble commenting a few months ago and it turned out I have to use Google Chrome as the browser for Blogger. I don't think they want us to use Explorer. Love the recipe because I love chicken and avocados.

Sharon said...

OMG! I love avocados! Can't wait to try this recipe.

Michaele said...

No way to go wrong here! So healthy AND tasty!

Shug said...

NICE ONE, got me hungry for avacados now! Can't grow them here, too cold in winter. Sounds delicious, thanks for sharing this. The green color is calling my name.

forgetmenot said...

Sandie, Thanks for coming by my blog, leaving such nice comments, and becoming a follower. I'm following you now too. Your avocado chicken salad looks good -I'll give it a try. It will be fun to "keep tabs" on your blog and learn more about you. And, anybody that likes "The Wizard of Oz" has to be a person of great intelligence, wit, and taste!!!! Take care. Mickie :)

Sue said...

Hi....this chicken dish looks delicious....I didn't know you were a cook...LOL...

That corgi :) said...

No problem leaving a comment, Sandie! Yum on the chicken salad; I love avocados!! We had a friend where we used to live that had avocado trees (before they sold their property). Every so often they would give us big bags of avocados.....such a treat!!

I bet you are a great wrapper!! As long as you aren't a rapper, LOL :)

(but some rap music is okay :)

as long as the lyrics aren't bad.......

betty

Buttercup said...

This looks yummy. I'm sorry I'm not closer to you, would have liked to join you for a wrapping party. It's one of my little talents and I do enjoy doing it, especially with company.

Simply Debbie said...

I have not had any trouble with your blog but I do have trouble with other blogs....it is probably blogger....
how do you make your signatures every day...
have a wonderful day
