Summer Salad

super easy

Let me first start off by saying, I messed up the salad dressing haha! I know right?!?! So to fix my mistake, I just added balsamic vinaigrette to the salad and it tasted great! I was going to try to make this awesome avocado lime salad dressing. But wow, it tasted like butt. SOOOOOOO I will try that again sometime soon!

Besides the Salad dressing, this salad is super easy to put together, and healthy for everyone!

Recipe

  • First, cut up your chicken into strips. This helps them cook faster, and makes them nice and brown.
  • Then add the chicken to a warmed skillet. Make sure your stove is on medium heat. A skillet can hold a lot of heat, and you do not want to burn your chicken.
  • Add Salt, Pepper, Cumin, a splash of curry powder, and Garlic Powder. I do not have measuring for you. You do you. Start small and then add more as you go! Cumin is a nice seasoning that blends all the tastes together! Curry is very strong and can overkill the recipe. Just use a pinch of this!

  • While the chicken is cooking, start prepping your veggies for the salad.
  • Remember to flip your chicken every two minutes. This keeps it nice and juicy. Do this a few times, until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
  • I like to find the prettiest bowl I have in the house! This makes Instagram peeps happy!
  • Next, add as much spinach or any other Salad combo you like to the bowl. I like to chop up some cilantro to add into the mix. But some people say cilantro tastes like soap. Again, you do you!
  • Now start dicing your onion. I used a purple onion and diced them into small cubes.
  • Then I took my tomato and cut them into slices. Then I cut each slice into 4ths.
  • Next, I cut my avocado into chunks. If you do not know how to cut an avocado, I have a nifty tool you can buy in my shopping list! My friend swears by this thing!

  • Now that all of your veggies are chopped, place them around your salad.
  • Finally, take your chicken off the skillet, and lay them nicely on top of the salad.
  • On the side, we had Balsamic vinaigrette. However, this salad will taste good with any dressing you prefer! My dad used greek cucumber dill dressing and loved it!
