Spring|Summer Salad Obsession

This salad makes me humble! And it’s probably my favourite salad recipe just now. It’s light, fresh, spicy, sweet but still a bit savoury at the same time. Can be eaten at any time of the day and at any time of the year.

Great source of:

– protein- chicken breast, hummus, feta cheese

– good oils- avocado, extra virgin olive oil

– high in fibre- sweet potato, salad mix

Serve for 2| Prep 10 min|Total time 30min

Recipe:

1 medium size sweet potato & 1 chicken breast

1 packet of your favourite salad mix (baby spinach, rocket salad etc)

salad dressing – extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and green tabasco

1 avocado

2 table spoons of hummus (my choice jalapeno hummus)

30g of feta chees

Spices for chicken – sweet paprika, garlic, mix of herbal pepper, salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F scrub the sweet potato clean and chop it into small fry-like shape pieces. Place it in a roasting tray, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and bake for 25min; or until soft.
  2. Cut chicken breast into long straps, add spices and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, place it in a roasting tray and bake for 15 min.
  3. While waiting for chicken and sweet potato, place salad on the plates and add cut avocado.
  4. Prepare salad dressing- mixing together 1 tea spoon of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and green tabasco.
  5. Once done toss sweet potato and chicken breast over the salad, crumble the feta over and drizzle with salad dressing. 
  6. Serve with hummus and fresh grounded pepper. 

Bon Appetit !
