CHICKEN, AVOCADO & RICOTTA CHEESE SALAD

INSALATA CON AVOCADO, POLLO, SEMI E RICOTTA”  in italiano

I first had this salad in a well known Soho restaurant, London. I was there for dinner and didn’t feel like having something like a steak or a main course, spotted this salad in the menu and thought “Why not, sounds delicious!”.

And I was right.

Since then I made the same salad (well, more or less...) at home a few times. I really love it because it contains good proteins (chicken) good fats (avocado and seeds) and ricotta cheese makes it slighty creamy but, at the same time, the seeds are a good crunchy contrast.

INGREDIENTS

for 1 portion

  • salad leaves
  • 80g ricotta cheese
  • 80g sliced avocado
  • 150g grilled chicken breast
  • 30g of crutons
  • 1 tbs of mixed seeds (sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds)

METHOD

  1. Grill the chicken breast in a non-stick pan.
  2. Slice the avocado.
  3. Place avocado, ricotta cheese and grilled chicken breast with your salad leaves and sprinkle everything with the seeds.
  4. Add in the crutons.

Don’t look at the Kcal, look at the contents. It is tasty and healthy. You have carbs, proteins and taste most of all. Fantastic for a tasteful and good lunch.

Have you ever tried a similir salad? What would you suggest to add in?
