Paired with a Pilsner
Hi, friends! How is everyone’s weekend going?? As per usual, it’s pretty low-key around here. It’s kind of like the calm before the storm. July will prove to be just as busy as May, so I’m getting in all of the spring and summer relaxation hours I can!
As a result, I have been cooking up a storm lately; and I’m totally not sad about it. I like when I can hang out at home cooking, photographing and writing. It’s a less stressful kind of life, and I love it. It’s the little things that make us happy right?
These avocado ranch chicken salad lettuce cups were a result of “we have to use up all of our pantry items Zach! I’m not moving them with us!” That’s basically the conversation we had. As we get ready to move in the next month, I want to get rid of as much food as humanly possible. We have so much left in our pantry, refrigerator and freezer. It will be a small victory if I’m not 800 pounds by the end of June.
I’m totally not upset about having to use up all of these food items. These chicken salad lettuce cups were born, and they were delicious! I’m totally hit or miss when it comes to lettuce cups. I’ve had some truly amazing ones, and some terribly awful ones. I think it all comes down to the lettuce you use. I think Boston lettuce is really your best bet. It has a nice large leaf. It is sturdy, and it takes some serious work to tear it. It’s a fairly popular food item, so it shouldn’t be too difficult for you to find.
Recipe for these avocado ranch chicken salad lettuce cups is below. Pair them with a lighter brew, like a pilsner or something similar. It’s the prefect summertime meal! Have a wonderful Sunday! xo
