Southwest Chicken Salad Recipe

With summer coming up, I thought it would be fun to share some lighter recipes on the blog. My aunt made this for Easter. Everyone thought it was delicious, but it really is. I'm going to try to get a better picture that will do it justice. My aunt was newly diagnosed with diabetes, so she has been working towards a healthier lifestyle. I called it Southwest Chicken Salad and it so super yummy. Bonus, it's really easy too. Especially when you buy the rotisserie chicken from the store.
You can put this on top of some greens, in a wrap, or by itself.

What You Need:

2 rotisserie chickens
1 15 oz. can black beans drained & rinsed
1 8 oz. can corn drained
3 small avocados chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
Cup cherry tomatoes chopped
Olive Garden Italian dressing to taste

What You Do:

Take all the meat off the rotisserie chickens and place in a big bowl, then put everything else in and mix.


Please let me know if you try it and how you like it in the comments below!
