Chicken Salad and Guacamole Recipe

Sharing is caring!

I get so tired of eating the same stuff. So today I tried 2 new recipes and I am happy I did. They both came out great and I will be making them again!

During Christmas I had lunch with a good friend. She made us Chicken Salad for lunch. It was awesome. Of course I did not use all the ingredients listed because I did not have them, but it was still great! Here is her recipe. She served them with croissants. I am making some rolls so I will let you know how they tasted.

Chicken Salad
4 cups chicken, cooked and cubed
1/3 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup walnuts chopped
3 Tbsp green onion finely chopped
1 cup celery diced
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
1/2 cup seedless red grapes
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cool whip topping
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix all together and enjoy.


Guacamole

2 Avocados
1/2 lime, squeezed for juice
1 Roma Tomato, diced
2 Tablespoon Red Onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon ground black pepper (I used 1/2 tsp)
2 teaspoon Kosher salt (I used 1/2 tsp)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (I used 1/2 tsp)
Peel, pit and mash the avocados in a small bowl. Squeeze in lime juice, pepper, salt, garlic powder and stir Gently stir in tomato and onion. Chill if desired. Stir.

Guacamole turns brown if kept for too long. To prevent some browning, shake bowl to get out air pockets. Then add a sheet of saran wrap, pushing it down so that it sits on top of the guacamole. Seel container with lid or another firm piece of saran wrap.
