Chicken Avocado Caprese Salad

Sometimes I just crave a great salad and this is one of my favorites. It’s healthy, full of flavor and so easy to make. Plus it has Avocados in it which I am a huge fan of.

This salad is perfection in a bowl. Tender juicy chicken and crisp lettuce with mozzarella cheese balls, ripe cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado and fresh basil leaves drizzled with a homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing.

I always marinade the chicken in the Balsamic Vinaigrette before cooking. And I prefer to use grilled or pan seared chicken in this salad. It adds so much more flavor.

You can use boneless skinless chicken thighs if you prefer in this salad. If you don’t have cherry tomatoes you can use grape tomatoes, or chopped Roma tomatoes.
