  • 1 c salsa

  • 2 limes .

  • 1/4 c vegetable oil

  • 1/4 c sour cream

  • 1 bunch (3/4 c) fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

  • 1 avocado, chopped

  • 6 radishes, thinly sliced

Preparation

Step 1

Toss the chicken with 1/2 cup salsa, the juice of 1 lime and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large bowl; let marinate 10 minutes.


Step 2 Mix the remaining 1/2 cup salsa, the sour cream and 2 tablespoons cilantro in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate.
