This Blackened Chicken, Asparagus and Avocado Salad with Lemon Pepper Yogurt Dressing is restaurant worthy, but only takes a few minutes to throw together!  You'll find yourself wanting to lick your bowl clean..I promise! It's that good!

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.

Blackened Chicken Salad


This salad will have you craving it all summer long! It's simply divine, and you just have to make the Lemon Pepper Yogurt dressing to drizzle on top! Oh Mylanta! It just puts the salad over the top , and no other dressing would really do!  Plus you can pronounce all the ingredients, and it take just a second or two to whip together!

This recipe came from my daughter in law. She said it originally called for Shrimp, but she changed it to chicken to suit her young children and budget. Since I don't care for seafood, that worked just fine for me too! I will tell you, my husband only stopped eating it long enough to say how much he loved it... several times, and to make  "Mmmm" sounds along the way!  Seriously! It's that good!

With great Sponsors like Michigan Asparagus  and Adams Spices and Extracts my recipe was for sure to turn out fantastic! The asparagus was fresh from the farm picked! It was young, tender, and crisp! t  he spices were flavorful with unique blends that taste like they discovered your own secret spice rubs and mix recipes! I used the Burgers & Fries blend of spices, a great all purpose blend that you will love using on many dishes!
