Chicken Vegetable salad


The dressing can be altered and customised according  to your taste.  I have done a simple Asian style dressing keeping in mind not to keep it bland catering to our love of spice. 



INGREDIENTS

  • FOR THE SALAD
  • 200 gms shredded boneless chicken 
  • 1 1/2 cups purple cabbage
  • 2 small carrots
  • 1 large Zucchini 
  • 1 large Iceberg 
  • 2 red/yellow bellpeppers
  • 1 small broccoli 
  • Handful of grapes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • FOR THE DRESSING
  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • 2 tsp Honey 
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp  chilli flakes 
  • 1 tbsp chilli  sauce 
  • 1 teaspoon pepper powder 
  • 1 juice of lime 

METHOD 


1. Chop up the vegetables in medium size pieces. Boil the chicken, shred and keep aside. 

2. Except iceberg lettuce and grapes add all the veggies in a bowl and add oil to it. 



3. Mix well, now transfer the veggies in a tray and grill in pre heated oven for 2 minutes. Or you can toss it in a pan on low flame for two minutes. 

4. Now in a big mixing bowl add the veggies, let it cool. Add chopped ice Berg, grapes, and shredded chicken. 

5. Now make the dressing for marinade. Whisk the marinate well to combine the ingredients. 



5. With a wooden ladle mix the dressing to the salad. Enjoy it at room temperature or chilled. 

Note


In vegetarian options you can add paneer, tofu or feta to the salad instead of the chicken. 

You can add onions and tomatoes to the salad too. But onions start to smell while tomatoes tend to turn soggy. 

Enjoy the salad with some roast chicken. Recipe next on blog. 

Stay tuned and keep cooking with Sweetannu.
