A beautiful spring strawberry spinach salad with grilled chicken and avocado for a healthy and hearty meal!

Ingredients

  • 120 grams baby spinach
  • 100 grams of Roman hearts
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 chicken fillets
  • olive oil
  • salt pepper
  • thyme, red paprika
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds
  • 2 ts hemp kernels

Mustard dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoonful of dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • salt pepper
  • pinch of water

Instructions

  1. Prepare the marinade for the chicken fillets: mix the olive oil with salt, pepper, thyme and red bell pepper. Spread the marinade over the meat and leave to marinate for a couple of minutes, or ideally overnight.
  2. Heat a skillet, then add the chicken fillets and cook until golden. Turn and cook on the other side as well. When it's cooked, remove it from the pan and let the meat rest for about 10 minutes, then cut them into strips.
  3. Prepare the mustard dressing: Place the ingredients in a jar with a lid, close the lid and shake the jar well, until all the ingredients are combined in a golden emulsion.
  4. Wash and dry baby spinach, romaine lettuce hearts, and strawberries. Slice the strawberries and remove the stems. Peel the onion and cut it into thin slices. Place the vegetables in salad bowls. Top with chicken and avocado slices. Add some sunflower seeds and hemp seeds, and pour over the mustard dressing. Mix well to combine and serve.
