Recipe: Winter salad of chicken and fresh market vegetables
Posted Jun 05 2013 1:24am
We have a fabulous farmer's market in Murwillumbah. Each week I'm able to start off food foraging from stalls heaving with fresh produce, some organic, but uber-fresh because most was picked the day before. Today was no exception, and my fridge is full of delicious vegetables.
With what I picked up at the market, plus some chicken and some pantry staples, I was able to put together a delicious and actually warming winter salad. As you can see from the photo I'm no food stylist, but it did taste good. Here's the combination:
- Red cabbage, finely shredded
- Snow peas, finely sliced
- Capsicum strips
- Cherry tomatoes
- Kalamata olives
- Pine nuts
- Char-grilled chicken thigh, freshly cooked and sliced
- Balsamic vinegar as dressing
I could have improved this by mashing the avocado with a little lemon juice to make a creamier dressing - maybe next time.
