Notes

Notes:
You can easily make this recipe Keto by using a Keto-friendly Caesar dressing, or one with a yogurt base and no added sugars.
Save the hassle of having to cook the chicken and use any leftover chicken you already have or buy a rotisserie style chicken and chop that.
If making this salad ahead of time, wait to add the avocado until just before serving to prevent it from turning brown.
