CHICKEN AVOCADO SALAD

Having leftover cooked chicken in the fridge can be a godsend on busy days.  This salad makes such an easy delicious lunch, or dinner for that matter.  With fresh spring greens, ripe avocados and fresh lime juice - a perfect match of ingredients.
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken - cut into cubes
1 large avocado cut into cubes
juice of 1/2 a lime
2 big Tblsp. fresh minced cilantro
4 heaping Tblsp. mayonnaise
1 green onion, diced
1/2 of a celery rib, diced small
salt and pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients into a medium sized bowl and mix well.  Serve over fresh lettuce greens.
Now that I have finished eating this salad - I just realized, it would also be tasty with a sprinkling of toasted sunflower seeds on top.  I mentioned this to my dtr. as she was polishing off the last of the salad - mouth very full - her eyes grew large while she vigorously nodded her head in agreement.  We will have to try that next time!
