Chicken Guacamole Rice Salad

Chicken Guacamole Rice Salad

The arrival of this new dish inspired by the Mexican dip is the ideal accompaniment to margaritas on the patio. If made ahead, rice holds the flavours of this salad, absorbing the punchy chili, lemon and avocado taste of guacamole as it marinates. If desired, add one cup chopped tomatoes or garnish with cilantro.
