Fresh, light and healthy…is essential when making any meal for summer. When you can incorporate as many fresh ingredients into a dish not only does it look gorgeous but the fresh ingredients add so much more flavor that will take any ordinary dish to extraordinary!!
I am always trying to find new clean, healthier ways to make older favorites better without taking away any of the flavors. So I’m sharing my grilled chicken with cilantro, lime, avocado salsa recipe. I paired this entrée with brown rice. I also added the leftover chopped cilantro with a few lime wedges not only for garnish but to squeeze over my rice or add more lime flavor to my chicken. Now that summer has unofficially officially started, it’s time for barbecues, picnics, and garden fresh dishes!
Seriously, one of the easiest dinners I have ever made and the FLAVOR of the cilantro-lime-avocado salsa over the chicken was out of this world! My husband is always my pickiest critic and he will always be straight forward with me. He said this was one of his top 2 favorite meals I have ever made. Trust me, I have made a lot of meals and for him to say that…I’m over the moon happy. I told him that it is possible for food to taste AMAZINGLY good without loading it with cheese and other unhealthy fats. If he wasn’t a believer before he certainly is now!
I will definitely be making this dish several more time over the summer season!
