One of the things I love the most about sharing recipes and blogging is the interaction that I have with all of you. Comments, emails, and interaction on social media, they all help me to connect better with you!

While I do share recipes that I make for my family, dishes that we actually eat or that I share with friends and neighbors, I love the hearing what recipes you would like to see more of as well. Always feel free to let me know of your special recipe requests or needs in the comments or even by email. I love to hear from you!

To assist you in finding recipes that fit special needs that I’ve already published, you can quickly find them in the Recipe Index by using the Search by Category feature. I think this will be invaluable to those looking for recipes to fit their family’s specific lifestyle and needs.

And guess what?

This avocado chicken salad recipe fits the categories of paleo, grain-free, gluten-free! You can’t beat that! But, let me just tell you. Even if you aren’t concerned with needing a dish that fits into one of those categories, you will still absolutely love it. So fresh and delicious, you absolutely won’t miss the mayonnaise in this chicken salad recipe.

    These chicken salad recipes all look delicious. Can’t wait to try them. A very good sense of what tastes good together you seem to have. Thank you, Gin Bell

    Great recipe! However, I added a couple of tablespoons of mayo and some crumbled blue cheese for a topping was even better!

    Quick, easy and scrumptious! I did add a bit more lime juice, avocado and used seasoned salt rather than Sea. Also, grabbed one of my 100 year cast iron pans to saute the seasoned chicken which I had cut into bite size pieces. That cut way down on the cooking time. When using chicken breasts, which have a tendency to be a bit dry, I soak them for up to 24 hours (in the fridge) in salt water and they become as succulent as dark meat. GREAT recipe, thank you SO much!

    I made this today for lunch. My daughters invited a friend over so all of their children could swim. I made the “mommas” this salad for their lunch. They loved it!! I served the tomatoes on the side in case someone wasn’t a tomato fan. I had tortillas for them to make a wrap, it was so good! I was afraid I would have to add something to this for a little moisture, but I didn’t it was perfect!. I also made your cucumber tomato salad. They thought they were getting the royal treatment to enjoy these salads while the kids ate their chicken nuggets!

      How sweet of you to have a special lunch for your sweet Momma friends! I know they were so thrilled at your wonderful hospitality! I’m so glad everyone enjoyed the salads. They are definitely favorites here as well! xo

    When I was a kid, my Mom’s friend made Avocado and egg salad. . It was done just like egg salad but had Avocado in it. I just remember it being delicious and have not had Avocado since. Do you have any recipe for this. Just my Husband and I now so I do not want a recipe for a big portion. My husband never ate Avocado so I am at least hoping he will eat it.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Leone,
      I hope you both enjoy this! It is really simple to make and so delicious! I do have an Avocado Egg Salad recipe! It’s tasty as well – enjoy! Thanks! xo

    Excellent spinoff for chicken salad. Very easy to prepare. My only minor deviation was to replace the chopped onion with chopped green onion. I served this on crunchy chopped romaine lettuce that was a visual and tasteful masterpiece. Warm garlic bread on the side completed the meal … and, of course, a couple glasses of pinot grigio.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Yum! Yum! Sounds delicious, John!

    I would very much like to have a BIG bowl of this salad for breakfast right now. It looks so yummy.
