Eats: Chicken & Avocado Caesar Salad...



If you're anything like me, then lunches for work can get a little monotonous after a while. Ham sandwiches for weeks on end followed by an occasional cheese one would bore most people.

I have been trying to switch up my lunch with lots of healthy options. Usually, I go for a pick and mix approach, however this salad has been one of my recent favourites.




What I used:

Several leaves of Romaine Lettuce
1/2 Avocado (this amount is perfect for 1 person)
Cherry Tomatoes
Handful of Kale (Great source of iron)
Chicken (Great source of protein; the pre-packed packets are fab)
Croutons
Caesar Dressing

001) Wash all the salad ingredients
002) Prepare the avocado (slice top to bottom and twist)
003) Add the croutons and the dressing
004) Enjoy!

Top tips:

To stop your remaining 1/2 avocado going brown, add a thin layer of olive oil to the exposed flesh. This will act as a barrier to prevent it going brown. Pop it into a container and place into the fridge.
If you are taking it to work, keep your croutons and dressing separate from the rest of the salad. No one likes soggy croutons!
