Fast & Easy Dinner: Avocado Stuffed with Chicken Salad

Fast & Easy Dinner: Avocado Stuffed with Chicken Salad

I know that many of you are health conscious and shy away from carb filled dishes, which is why tonight's dinner is a perfect quick fix meal for those weary of extra carbs. It takes a highly familiar concept, chicken salad, and lightens it up. Instead of serving the salad slapped between two pieces of carb heavy bread, my recipe mounds the salad on top of an avocado half. The result makes for a light, summer meal that is ready in minutes. To look at the simple recipe please

i just made avocado stuffed with shrimp with remoulade ... it was perfect. i love the combination of shrimp and avocado, and the remoulade added a kick. used cooked and peeled shrimp and freestyled with the remoulade going loosely off of a version i found on epicurious.

i'd probably scoop out some of the avocado and use it for garnish, but otherwise it sounds delicious!
