Low-Carb Chicken Salad with Avocado, Radishes, and Lime

This new recipe for Chicken Salad with Avocado, Radishes, and Lime is a good example of how my eating preferences and this blog have changed through the years. Back in the archives there’s a printer-friendly recipe for Chicken, Black Bean, Avocado, and Radish Salad with Lime and Cilantro, which is the recipe that inspired this one.

And although that salad was well-received when I posted it and it’s certainly tasty, now a salad with black beans would be too high in carbs for most of my readers, and I wouldn’t eat it often myself either.

But if there’s one thing I believe strongly, it’s that everyone gets to make their own food choices! So choose the version with black beans and cilantro or the new salad here with chicken, avocado, and radishes, whichever is your jam! Both salads are great for the hot weather you’re probably having right now, and any salad that includes chicken + avocado is something I know I’ll like.

What ingredients do you need?

  • cooked, diced chicken
  • radishes
  • green onion
  • avocados
  • fresh squeezed lime juice
  • olive oil
  • mayo
  • ground cumin
  • salt
  • Green Tabasco Sauce

An easy way to get cooked chicken for salads like this:

I know not everyone lives near Costco, but if you do their cooked and chopped rotisserie chicken that comes in a sealed package is absolutely the bomb! Ever since I discovered it I’ve been happily using it for chicken salads and chicken soups!

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked, diced chicken (or a little more)
  • 1 bunch radishes, washed, trimmed, and cut so each piece has a red edge showing
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion, white and green parts
  • 2 large avocados, peeled and diced into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 T fresh squeezed lime juice (see notes)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 T olive oil
  • 3 T mayo
  • 2 T fresh-squeezed lime juice (see notes)
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 - 2 tsp. Green Tabasco Sauce (see suggestion below)

Instructions

  1. Cut up enough cooked chicken breast to make 2 generous cups of diced cooked chicken. (I started with cooked rotisserie chicken from Costco. If you prefer you can bring a couple of cups chicken stock or water to a low simmer, add two large chicken breasts, and let them cook on low heat until the chicken is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.)
  2. Whisk together olive oil, mayo, fresh squeezed or fresh-frozen lime juice, ground cumin, salt, and Green Tabasco Sauce to make the dressing. Start with 1 teaspoon of Green Tabasco Sauce and then taste to see if you'd like to use the second teaspoon (affiliate links).
  3. Put the chicken into a bowl, add about half the dressing, stir to coat chicken with the dressing, and let the chicken marinate while you prep other ingredients.
  4. Chop up radishes, cutting them so in halves or fourths lengthwise and then slicing so each piece has some skin on it.
  5. Slice the green onions. (It may seem like a lot, but I recommend using the full amount.)
  6. Stir radishes and green onions into the chicken and add the rest of the dressing, or as much as you prefer.
  7. Dice avocado into into 1 inch pieces, put in a small bowl, and toss with 1 T lime juice.
  8. Gently mix the avocado into the salad.
  9. Season the salad to taste with fresh-ground black pepper and a little more salt if desired and serve.

Notes

I used my fresh-frozen lime juice for this recipe.
