BLT Chicken Salad-Stuffed Avocados

July 29, 2019

The BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato) sandwich may be the most serendipitous sandwich ever created—refreshing romaine provides a sturdy bed to sop up the summer sweet juices dripping from thick slices of vine-ripened ruby tomato, salty snaps of smoked pork meat and crisp fat, gilded with a thick, creamy smear of mayo. While we love the occasional slice of buttered homemade sourdough bread or finely crafted gluten-free bread as the bookends to a sandwich, we think a BLT is strong enough to stand alone, breadless. Actually, make that a BLTA because, well, Primal Kitchen did originate in California. We consume avocado pretty much like it’s a condiment, similar to how some smother hot sauce on nearly everything that’s edible. This version of a BTLA uses leftover diced chicken as a filling for halved avocados, but the rest sticks pretty true to the classic.
