I wanted to venture out and substitute mayonnaise in this salad, so I incorporated avocado. Sun dried tomatoes add a punch to this dish. That bitter, vinegary bite contrasts the smoothness you get from the chicken and avocado pieces. To top everything off, Italian parsley finishes off this salad beautifully. Be sure to include lime juice in this chicken salad. It flavors the dish and gives the avocado a nice, bright green color. It also helps mimic the flavor of mayonnaise.
