Ingredients

  • 1 cup Kale chopped
  • 2 cups Lettuce chopped
  • 1 Tomato diced
  • 1/2 Pepper (Red, Orange or Yellow) chopped
  • 1/2 Avocado diced
  • 1/2 breast of cooked Chicken chopped ( I like Cajun spice on mine in this salad)FOR THE DRESSING
  • 2 oz fresh squeezed Lime Juice (about 2 Limes)
  • 2 oz Olive Oil
  • 1 oz Honey
  • 1 oz Mustard (I used French's, but you can use Dijon or any Mustard)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Mix your lettuce and kale on a plate. Add the chopped peppers and tomato.
  • The best way to dice or slice an avocado is to slice in half first, then with a sharp knife cut into the flesh length-wise and then width-wise being careful not to cut through the skin. Then take a spoon and just scoop out the flesh. It will be cut perfect for you. No fuss, no mess.
  • Add your avocado to the veggies.
  • Add your chicken right on top.
    FOR THE DRESSING
  • In a mason jar with a lid, or some other small jar with a lid, squeeze in the lime juice, pour in the olive oil and mustard.
  • If you want, heat up the honey a bit before you add it in. This will make it easier to combine with the other ingredients.
  • Add the salt and pepper. You will probably want about 1/2 teaspoon of each.
  • Shake it well and drizzle it on your salad.
