This Zesty Chicken Salad Will Put Your Sad Desk Lunch Out Of Commission
There are only a handful of times in our lives when someone eats a salad and thinks, wow, this is better than the burger I had last night. Salads are made to seem bland, uncool and unfilling, but we’re here to say that is simply not true. Behold: an easy-to-make salad packed with flavor and all the good textures you crave in your ideal meal — crispiness, freshness, creaminess. This salad has it all.
Zesty Chicken Salad (one serving)
- 1/2 cup cooked chicken (preferably shredded, but your call!)
- 2 big handfuls spinach
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- Half a small red onion, cut into slices
- Half an avocado, cubed
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- Juice from one lime
- 1 tsp. honey
- 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
In a bowl or Tupperware container, add chicken, spinach, cherry tomatoes, red onion and cubed avocado.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, honey, garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to make your dressing. Pack separately from salad if you’re bringing it for lunch, or if you’re eating it immediately, toss with the salad components and enjoy!
