Bacon Avocado Chicken Salad

Bacon Avocado Chicken Salad with Pita Chips and Fresh Grapes

A friend of mine shared this delightfully fresh recipe with me a couple of years ago. I saw her picture online and immediately asked for the recipe. Unfortunately, the original recipe had boiled eggs in it. My husband will not eat eggs. It’s a major food aversion for him. I made a couple of adjustments and came up with the recipe I’m sharing today. Ya’ll! It’s so good! Seriously! Every single time I make it we comment on how fresh it tastes. The fresh ingredients blend so well with the homemade Lemon Vinaigrette. This chicken salad will have you begging for more!
