Tropical Chicken Salad (paleo and gluten-free)

paleo living magazineThis chicken salad is an explosion of flavors and textures in your mouth.  The creaminess of the avocado…the crunchiness of the celery and pecans…the moistness of the chicken thigh…the crispness of the apple…the sweetness of the mango.  This is great on it’s own, or put on a fresh bed of greens with a tomato slice.  It can also be served at a party in endive boats.
