Avocado Chicken Salad In A Garlic Dijon Vinaigrette

Avocado Chicken Salad In A Garlic Dijon Vinaigrette

Busy studying? Long day at work? Life hitting you hard these days? That doesn’t mean you need to skimp on your self-care.

To me, nourishing my body with wholesome real food is a form of self-care because it makes me feel good, digests easily, keeps me focused & full of energy, satisfies me so I’m not constantly snacking, prevents binges after long bouts of forgetting to eat & prevents brain fog!

Here’s a really simple lunch or dinner recipe that takes hardly any time to prepare; I made it for my sis to keep her fuelled up for studying! All you need? Veggies, avocado, your choice of protein & a simple dressing & you’re good to go.

If you don’t have any protein prepped like chicken or fish, opt for a can of low sodium beans or legumes, marinated tofu or tempeh, organic wild tuna or boiled eggs! There’s always a solution.

YOU NEED:

  • 1 small avocado
  • Cooked protein of choice (we used pan-seared chicken strips)
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 large carrot
  • Handful cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 pear or apple for sweetness
  • 2 tbsp. white balsamic vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/2-1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Celtic sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

HOW?:

  • Add the salad ingredients to a large bowl.
  • Whisk together the dressing ingredients, then pour it over the veggies & toss!
  • Enjoy!
