Easy Living Salad


My dear friend Michelle gave me this recipe several years ago. I love any salad - green, pasta, fruit - and this one is rice! You should definitely give this a try! Perfect addition to your summer menu!

Easy Living Salad

1 box Chicken Rice-a-Roni, cooked and cooled
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 large Roma tomatoes, diced and drained
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 avocados, diced

Dressing:

1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
3/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard

Mix salad and dressing. This is best if made the night before.

* When I made my recently, I saved the avocados and half of the dressing to add the next
morning

**This salad is great doubled or tripled for a large group
