Avocado and Chicken Salad



Ever since my first acquaintance with the avocado, I am now mad about avocados! My next avocado dish is a salad with steamed chicken. I made a dressing with lemon juice and red wine vinegar and it was totally delicious. The creamy avocado made for an indulging mouth feel and I simply cannot get enough!


Avocado and Chicken Salad

For the salad
- 1 ripe avocado, sliced
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- 8 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1 cup alfalfa sprouts
- some pineapple slices
- Corriander leaves
- Steamed chicken, shredded

Dressing
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
- Salt to taste
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil

For the dressing :
- Pound garlic with salt and peppercorns.
- Add lemon juice, red wine vinegar, honey and olive oil.  Stir to mix,

To assemble the salad :
- Put all vegetables and chicken into a mixing bowl.
- Pour in dressing and toss.

Note : A sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds would add a nice touch.
