Avocado Lime Chicken Salad – gluten free, dairy free, sugar free

3 cups diced chicken (I used grilled)
2 avocados
1 lime – juiced
1/3 cup finely diced red onion
1/2 cup chopped bacon (not bacon bits…)
In a large bowl, juice the lime and add the avocado. Mash well with a fork, mixing the lime juice with the avocado. 
Add remaining ingredients, taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. (I used about a tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper). 
Serve on a bed of lettuce with some diced tomatoes if you want to be fancy…or just eat it out of the bowl 🙂
(If you are my mother, you might want to add some fresh cilantro…I think it tastes like soap, so I didn’t. )
