Green Goddess Salad

Gluten Free

The green goddess salad is full of non starchy greens, a source of protein and lots of healthy fats.

It's a perfect way to build your plate to help you feel fuller for longer and not spike your blood sugar levels at lunch or dinner as it's a great low carbohydrate option. I personally love adding avocado and feta to a salad, it really does add that bit of oomph!

Serves 4

Ingredients

500g chicken thighs

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon garlic infused oil

½ tablespoon dried or fresh chilli, chopped

20 green beans

1 cucumber

1 whole avocado

100-200g rocket

100g feta, crumbled

Handfull fresh dill, chopped

Salt & pepper

Dressing:

Homemade Pesto

Method

Pre heat the oven to 180°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper then place the chicken thighs into the pan. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, garlic infused oil and chilli. Cook for approximately 35-40 minutes or until the chicken flesh is white.

Chop off the ends of the beans, then place them into a pot of boiling water and cook until softened. Drain excess water off and let them cool.

Place the rocket into a large salad bowl. Slice the cucumber and avocado into long thin strips and chop the dill. Place the cucumber, avocado, dill and feta into the bowl.

​Add the chicken, beans and homemade pesto into the salad. Comine thouroughly and season with salt & pepper.
