Wild Rice & Chicken Salad Recipe

My friend Kim made this fabulous recipe that I just had to share. It is a yummy, light summer salad--perfect for a bbq or shower, etc... She served it on romaine lettuce and it was so tasty! Thanks for sharing, Kim!
Wild Rice & Chicken salad
2 (small) boxes of uncle Ben's wild rice (cook according to box directions)
4 green onions chopped
1 bell pepper (red looks great in it!)
6 oz snap peas
2 avocados
3-4 chicken breast or rotisserie chicken
1 cup pecans
juice of 1 lemon
Add all ingredients except for avocados & pecans (add those right before serving).

4 cloves garlic or 2-3 tsp of minced garlic

1 t. pepper
1 T sugar (can do less)
