Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwiches

So this appears it was an easy dish that D made.  It was a little bland, but could be fixed.  I think adding cumin or a jalapeno or some type of SW Seasoning would help.  I also think changing the bread to a pita or a sourdough would be better.  The wheat overpowered the salad (on the second day).

But I like the texture, and the creaminess, so I would have again.

We had with jalapeno and lime refried beans.

Avocado gives this chicken salad a rich, creamy texture as well as a healthy dose of monounsaturated fat, which protects against heart disease.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
Cook time:4 Minutes
Prep time:7 Minutes

3 cups (1/2-inch) cubed cooked chicken breast
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup (1/2-inch) cubed avocado (about 1)
4 green leaf lettuce leaves
8 whole wheat bread slices, toasted

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Gently stir avocado into chicken mixture until combined.

2. Place 1 lettuce leaf onto each of 4 bread slices. Spoon chicken mixture evenly onto each lettuce leaf. Top with remaining bread slices.
