Instead of the usual potato salad for your next cookout, try this healthy and filling salad full of summer produce, creamy avocado, and savory grilled chicken. It’s easy to put together and makes a meal all on its own.

Serves 2-4

Prep time: 30 minutes

Here's a variation to try: Swap shrimp for the chicken; just skewer and grill. You can also use different seasonings — and Italian blend would work nicely with some chopped parsley and lemon juice.

    • Add the chopped chicken to a bowl with the cherry tomatoes, avocado, onion, and cilantro.
