One of my favourite salads in this Indian Chicken Salad with Avocado Green Chutney Dressing. The best thing is that it is ready to eat in 10 minutes. I am obsessed with this dressing and have used it in several recipes including egg bagel, egg salad, quinoa salad, chickpea chaat, rice salad. This salad is also a really good option for anyone who is wanting to have a healthy option for lunch.
I guess the reason I love this salad all year round is because it has a bit of a kick to it so it doesn't feel like it should be reserved just for summer. It still keeps me nice and warm inside.
The chicken marinade is as simple as it gets and it is cooked within 6 - 7 minutes and the dressing is a whack it all in the blender job. It is my fave dressing. Here are some other dressings that I use in chicken breast recipes. All those come together super quick just like this one. I also add crunchy cucumber, red onion and a ready bag of crunchy salad leaves from the supermarket in this salad.
The first time I served this salad..(which was some time ago to be honest), it was so well received, that we went through weeks of just consuming that and other recipes with this divine green sauce.
This kind of easy, hearty, seriously spicy and simple salad makes me so very happy when I'm not in the mood to cook a lot. There is so little to do with a recipe like this, that I feel like I haven't really cooked at all but it tastes lip smackingly delicious and trust me, once you eat it, you will want to eat it all the time. I had it today for lunch and my daughter came over for a bite. I was thinking it may be too spicy for the kids and I had made them something else, but nope..they loved it as much as I did!
Basically this salad is literally:
