Ingredients

  • 2 cups Baby Spinach
  • 1 tbsp Mint Leaves, optional chopped
  • 1/4 cup Strawberries sliced
  • 1 Avocado chopped
  • 1/4 cup Almonds
  • 1/2 ` cup Grilled Chicken (brush the chicken with olive oil; sprinkle with Italian herbs to taste and grill for 4 minutes per side)
  • 1/2 tbsp Crumbled Feta Cheese

Dressing

  • 2 tbsp Buttermilk*
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Wholegrain Mustard
  • 3-4 Drops Stevia optional
  • Pinch of Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Make the salad; in a large bowl, combine baby spinach, mint leaves (if using), strawberries, avocado, almonds, and grilled chicken.
  • Make the dressing; combine buttermilk, extra-virgin olive oil, and lemon juice in a bowl. Whisk until blended.
  • Stir in Chia seeds, and whole-grain mustard.
  • Add Stevia if using (adds a nice sweet balance) and salt to taste.
  • Serve salad and drizzle with dressing.

Note

  • Instead of buttermilk you can use the full-fat coconut milk. It does change the taste but gives a nice balanced sweetness and exotic taste.

    The dressing is optional but gives a nice touch. Still, you can use some other type of dressing. We suggest simple olive oil and lemon juice mix, with Chia or poppy seeds. They give a nice crunchiness.
