Ensalada de Pollo con aguacate – Chicken Salad with avocado
The holidays bring the memories of my childhood and all the amazing aromas coming out of my mom’s kitchen – who added her unique flavor to holiday favorites! We would munch all day, savoring the appetizers and wondering what was coming after midnight. Coming back from church, sitting at the table with my brother, sister and my parents and the never-ending latino chatting – we’d all talk at the same time – holiday happiness while my mom would bring the most delicious dishes, salads, fresh bread and side dishes which would feed an army! I’ve brought this tradition to my home, incorporating Latino dishes to traditional American favorites. What a great way to bring a piece of my country to my family’s holiday meal! This is one of my mom’s favorite ensaladas, which I am so happy to share today! Hope you enjoy!

1 tbsp of chopped parsley
