Ingredients

FOR THE STUFFED AVOCADOS

  • 12 slices low sodium turkey bacon or low sodium bacon
  • 3 whole avocados, cut in half, pits removed
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 cups diced or shredded baked chicken breasts OR rotisserie chicken
  • 3 green onions, washed, trimmed, and sliced (keep the sliced green parts for garnish)
  • plain nonfat yogurt or low fat sour cream, optional
  • dried parsley, for garnish, optional
  • cracked black pepper, for garnish, optional

FOR THE LEMON DRESSING

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Instructions 

FOR THE STUFFED AVOCADOS

  • Cook the bacon to a desired crispness; when cool enough to handle, crumble it into a salad bowl. 
  • Cut the avocados, remove the pits, and carefully scoop out the flesh. 
  • Dice up the avocado flesh and add it to the salad bowl.
  • Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the diced avocados and the empty avocado shells to prevent from browning.
  • In the salad bowl, mix in the diced or shredded chicken and the white part of the sliced green onions. Set aside.

FOR THE LEMON DRESSING

  • Whisk together all of the ingredients in a small bowl; adjust the seasonings to taste and pour it over the salad.  
  • Taste the salad and adjust the seasonings.
  • Using a spoon, scoop out the prepared chicken bacon salad and fill the empty avocado shells.
  • If desired, add a dollop of plain nonfat yogurt or sour cream.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions, dried parsley and cracked black pepper.
  • Serve.

Notes

You can prepare the salad ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to use. I suggest no more than over night and up to 24 hours.
