Meal Inspo: Honey-lime Chicken And Avocado Salad

Lettuce, dressing and some vegetables was NEVER my idea of a good salad. Just because you're mixing a bunch of veggies and protein together doesn't mean it has to be basic. Salads can be rich with flavour and full of multiple textures. Those are the kind of salads you enjoy eating over and over again. This week we couldn't help but love this salad inspo for honey-lime chicken and avocado. Try it for yourself.

Little tip: Wanna add a touch of sweetness to it? Try throwing in a few dried cranberries, trust us, you won't regret it :-)
