Chicken, Avocado and Orange Salad

Whenever you are in mood for something light, healthy but still delicious this chicken, avocado and orange salad might be one of the best options. This is by far one of the best chicken salads ever.

Really love the add of oranges here. The textures combine so  well. The soft avocado in combination with crunchy almonds, crispy salad, sweet orange and grilled chicken makes such a wonderful comforting dish. The dressing made with orange juice, Dijon mustard and honey is genial.

I didn’t expect that much from this avocado and chicken salad, but it was beyond my expectations. I ate it all by myself and didn’t share it with anybody after finishing the photo shoot:)  I highly recommend it. It is nutritious, healthy and amazingly tasty.
