What You’ll Need

  • Avocados: There are a ton of varieties of avocados. I love using Hass avocados but you can use whatever that is in season.
  • Grape tomatoes: If you don’t have grape tomatoes, you can use cherry tomatoes or Roma tomatoes.
  • Red onion: Red onions add a pop color to the salad just like the grape tomatoes. They are also milder than yellow or white so it’s a great option when using it raw in salads.
  • Red bell pepper: Another pop of color, I love the crunch of the bell peppers. You can also use different colored bell peppers but the red ones are the sweetest.
  • Jalapeño pepper: For a bit of heat, I add some jalapeño.
  • Lemon juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice adds brightness to the salad.
  • Olive oil: You can also swap with an oil of your choice.
  • Seasoning: Salt, pepper, chili seasoning, paprika, and cumin are used in this recipe.
  • Chicken tenderloins: Tenderloins are the most tender part of the chicken breasts. You can also use just chicken breasts instead.
  • Garlic: I prefer freshly minced garlic for the best flavoring.
