Fresh Summer Salad!

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

It's 72 degrees, the sun is shining and I was craving a bomb salad. My favorite type of salad is one with 1000 veggies, a great dressing and some spicy chicken. This recipe is SO easy... so easy in fact that Adam and I have made it three times in the past week. Don't judge.

I hope you are all enjoying the spring weather, or I at least hope you're not still getting inches and inches of snow. Come on Mother Nature! It's time for summer salads, summer drinks and sunshine!

Ingredients:
Salad
  • Lettuce
  • Red onion
  • Tomatos
  • Green Bell Peppers
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber 
  • Chicken, cut into pieces
  • And literally any other veggie you can find
Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup plain almond milk
  • 4 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • dab of honey
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
How to make: 
  1. For the salad, clean and cut up all veggies. I love a chopped salad, so I chop everything including my lettuce. 
  2. For the chicken, thaw, cut into chunks, sprinkle with salt, pepper and chili powder. Salute in a large pan for about 10-12 minutes, flipping occasionally. 
  3. For the dressing, throw everything in a blender and blend until desired thickness. I added a titch more milk to thin it out. I let the dressing sit for about an hour in the fridge to let it all blend together.
