Avocado Chicken Salad

This avocado chicken salad is great by itself or as a side at your next picnic or BBQ.  You can also try it in a sandwich.  To cut down on the calories, without sacrificing the taste, we use fat-free greek yogurt instead of mayo.  100 grams of mayo has 680 calories, compared to 59 calories in fat-free greek yogurt.  This recipe is gluten-free.  If you’d like to make this dish dairy-free, simply omit the greek yogurt and add a little olive oil.
