1 medium avocado
juice of one lemon (about 2 tbsp), divided
1 tsp. salt
1 small (3¼ oz.) can ripe olives, drained & quartered
2 cups chopped celery
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1/2 cup mayonnaise
lettuce as needed

Dice the avocado & sprinkle it with half the lemon juice & the salt.

Combine avocado, olives, celery & chicken.

Add remaining lemon juice to mayonnaise and blend until smooth.

Add dressing to chicken mixture; toss gently to coat.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve on bed of fresh greens.

(bet this would be good in a stuffed tomato too, y'think?
)

Whoa baby!

Forget everything I said about bed of greens or stuffed tomato . . . wrap this up in a nice high-fiber tortilla and ENJOY!

Well, you could line the tortilla with a fresh crunchy lettuce leaf - that's what I did . . . OMG it's good! :eek: :D :D

Yep - this filling was so much better in a wrap, I hadda go back for a second one. :D Lucky I've had a really low-carb day, because I clocked only 114 (6.3) after having two of them!

Next time I'll have to try it heated - thanks, Peter. I think we share a lot of the same dietary preferences.
