Like how I just saw an entire shelf dedicated to pumpkin spice creamer at Target when it’s only August 1st. While the corporate world is ready to bring the spirit of fall, I’m sitting here in the middle of a heat wave thinking about ice cream, the beach, and eating ice cream on the beach.

I can’t ring in the spirit of fall when all I want to do is lay in a room with about twelve fans pointed on me with an endless supply of iced coffee in my hand. I just can’t.

What I can do though, is eat this avocado chicken salad. Because, wow. It’s the perfect summer dish, because it’s light, simple to throw together, and tastes eyeball-rollin’ good.

Somewhere along the way, I discovered the wonder that is an avocado, and have been a total avocado convert since.

Since I’ve been putting avocado on absolutely everything, why not in chicken salad?

The more important question here is, why haven’t I done this earlier in life?

It’s perfect.

Seriously.

And tastes amazing with Blue Diamond Artisan Nut-Thins.

        This sounds fabulous! Can’t wait to try it! Not a pepper jack fan so will go with jack cheese. I’m loving your posts, Michelle, especially now that I’ve moved to Oregon. Remember me? I’m a friend of your sweet mother!

    Ok, I have to admit that I’ve started baking a few fall recipes, BUT I will not share them until later in September and I’m still trying to suck in every last moment of summer! 🙂 This chicken salad looks amazing, Michelle! Avocados are my favorite so this looks like the perfect snack for those nut thins!
