Spicy Grilled Chicken & Avocado Salad

I loveeee this salad. :D! I have been known to eat salads without dressing. This is one of them. The original recipe had somewhat of a dressing to it that you can add, but honestly, I thought the chicken and the blueberries kinda gave the whole thing enough flavor. *-* We changed up the recipe in accordance to what we had at my house. :P
