Chicken Salad

Sorry no pictures on this one. I thought I had some, but I can’t find them. Anyways, this is a great basic chicken salad recipe. You CAN substitute mashed avocado for the mayo, but I prefer it with a good homemade healthy fat mayonnaise. The recipe ends up with a lot of carrot, but I like that, you could probably use half a big carrot and be fine. I use leftover whole roasted chicken and I dice it pretty fine for this. Serve with a spoon or on cucumber rounds, or stuff into mini sweet peppers
