What’s a delicious, easy and healthy salad that’s great on its own for brunch or lunch? One that will challenge - maybe even kill - people’s beliefs that healthy salads are “boring” or “rabbit food”? My homemade chicken and avocado salad. I created it a few weeks ago, and it’s so tasty - and simple to make - that I’ll share the recipe.
What are the ingredients in my salad?
What’s the method?
Mix all the ingredients together and it’s done. (Obviously add the vinegar and olive oil on top of the salad at the end, after you add all of the other ingredients.) Too easy! Enjoy!
The sweet apple mixed with the sour balsamic vinegar, along with the other ingredients and textures, is a great combination. I wish that I created this salad earlier!
I was thinking of also adding fresh carrot and tomato, but I like this salad’s simplicity, plus sometimes less is more, hey. I ate a carrot and big tomato separately as part of my lunch on the day that I ate this salad, and I didn’t miss these not being in the salad.
Of course you can change the dressing to suit you. Beware, lots of salad dressings are not really healthy. A key reason - among other reasons - is that they contain oils that can cause health problems over time, such as heart disease. Many people still believe that these unhealthy oils are still healthy though, including many nutrition experts. Cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest oils around. Few will argue with that!
What are some ingredients that you find irresistible in salads?
And what might you like to add (or subtract) from the above salad to make it suit you more?
