Going on a Picnic for #SundaySupper!!

Picnic BasketYes I still fantasized about that dreamy guy that would pick me up without me knowing where we were off to. The guy would pack a cute picnic basket fully equipped with my favorite wine, glasses, cheeses, crackers, fruit and the whole shabang! He would spread out a comfy blanket and feed me the cheese and some grapes, then the screaming baby in the background awakens me from my dream! Back to reality!! Oh and the dreamy guy……of course he’s my hubby! 🙂 So this weekend officially kicks off Summer for my family! Well I should say it usually does, it’s Memorial Day weekend, which is opening weekend at the campground we go to every summer. Why is this year different than any other year you ask? Well I’m due to have my son in 5 weeks and my camper has yet to be cleaned and opened for the summer…..UGH, we just have a lot on our plates with getting ready for baby Drew’s arrival and my husband finishing up my sister’s SundaySupperapartment off our house. Don’t worry it’s not stopping me from wanting a Picnic to kick off this wonderful weekend that means Summer is right around the corner!!!! I love picnics, well I never really enjoyed them until my daughter was born but since I’m a stay at home mom now, during the nicer months I just love being outside with her. Our picnics consist of packing a lunch box of sandwiches, snacks, fruit, drinks, and a blanket and heading to the nearest park!! My kiddo gets the two things she loves most, to be outside and food!! 🙂 Of course I had to take part in this weeks theme!! The ever so talented #SundaySupper team has brought you their favorite dishes for any picnic!! Today’s event is being hosted Katy over at Happy Baking Days!! Thanks for hosting this Picnic Katy!!

What did I bring to this wonderful picnic??

Avocado Chicken Salad (1)

Well I’ve been wanting to try this new recipe I found while searching for healthier dishes (trying to prepare for after my son is born!) I love chicken, tuna and ham salad but I know the one thing in them that makes those awesome bring anywhere sandwiches bad for you is the mayo! I don’t even like mayo however I still love the salad sandwiches! I also have a new avocado obsession so when I came across a this recipe I altered to what I would like!!

  1. Good luck for the arrival of your new baby! How exciting! I love avocado and I bet it’s great as a sandwich filler. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  2. I am on an avocado kick and trying to keep my intake at 1/2 a day….so hard not to eat the whole thing!

    This sandwich sounds so good! I love the addition of sour cream for the tang! I’m sure the salad would be great on its own!

  3. Mmmm…avocados are a yummy addition to your chicken salad! Can’t wait to hear about baby Drew’s arrival 🙂

  4. I love the idea of adding the avocado for the creaminess! I am sure you didn’t miss the mayo at all. Pinning on my Recipes to Try board. This would even be perfect on crackers as an appetizer, I am thinking.

  5. I think you can totally be excused for not having that camper ready yet – take it easy!! Great recipe for an easy meal for a picnic or meal – I’m in need of lots of these for the summer months.

  6. Yum! This looks right up my alley! I’ve replaced mayo with avocado in coleslaw before but never thought to do it in chicken salad. I’ll definitely be saving this!

  7. PS…I will never look at a giraffe again without thinking of “giffys.” Too cute!

  8. What a simple and delicious sandwich!!! LOVE the mix of chicken and avocado!

  9. YUM! This sounds delicious. I always use avocado in my tuna salad – adding it to chicken salad is awesome 🙂

  10. I’m a huge fan of avocado chicken salad and most especially love it on a toasted sandwich like this. Looks fabulous Tammie! I cannot believe the baby is almost here….
    Seems like just yesterday you announced it. I’m thinking of you!

    1. Seems like yesterday that I just announced it too, however it FEELS MUCH longer LOL! 🙂 xoxo

  11. Girl, you’ve got so much on your plate and you were still able to make these incredible, creamy, delicious sammiches! I’m obsessed with avocado and chicken is the one meat I could never give up, so needless to say, I’d love these. I hope you’re taking it easy before the baby gets here – so exciting!

    1. Hi Nancy!! You’d love this sandwich! I’m “trying” to take it easy LOL 🙂

  12. Ok, so I have to admit: I don’t usually like chicken salad sandwiches…but with avocado involved?!?! I could definitely be a convert…

  13. Love your sandwich!The avocados and the chicken seems like the perfect combination to me :)So easy and so delicious!!
