A Loaded Greek Chicken Avocado Salad is considered one of our favourites. You may keep in mind this Greek Lemon Garlic Chicken Salad from final yr? Well, this salad is EXACTLY the identical as THAT ONE, with out the flatbreads and Tzatziki!
I can’t consider it’s 7:30 within the am, I’m sippin’ on a recent cup of coffee, and all I would like is that this Greek Salad. A few weeks in the past, we made A VIDEO for my Avocado Greek Salad & Greek Salad Dressing, and eventually received round to posting it final night time (good issues take time — particularly with the quantity of shoppers we have now). Well, after videoing that salad, we needed to eat it with some hen, so we proceeded to make up some extra dressing (that doubles as a marinade — you understand how I roll), and grill some hen breasts. Adding some romaine lettuce to assist bulk it up a bit since there have been four of us hungry individuals drooling throughout one another, I stepped again when it was completed and died somewhat.
We beloved it a lot, we ended up making it once more the very subsequent day for lunch, once I might swear I’d already made it earlier than? But when? How? Ahhhhh yeaaaahhh THIS ONE! This is precisely how the thought processes work in my mind.
WAAAIIIYYYTTT! I NEED TO SHOOT IT! Step away from the salad and put your forks down. Hands the place I can see ’em. That can be me, screaming in any respect the forks about to dive in. I slices some avocado on the aspect and took 5 photographs. FIVE! It’s so lovely I didn’t want to the touch anything.
And this salad was born. Low carb in all its glory > wholesome > straightforward > and tremendous delisioso. Filled with every part you discover in a Greek salad from good Greek eating places, this salad would rival any restaurant salad. Green peppers (or capsicums), cucumbers, tomatoes, purple onions, Kalamata olives and feta cheese. Plus avocado for the additional advantage of well being fat; and hen! Like I say, MEAL IN A SALAD.
As I stated, this dressing — down there — additionally doubles as a marinade.
The dressing is made THEN divided to create each the marinade and the dressing. The hen DOES NOT contact the salad dressing itself.
A loaded salad full of excellent for you elements. It does NOT get any higher!
