Protein lovers salad

Who said healthy food can’t taste yummy?

I love protein rich foods as they really fill me up for a long time.  I love serving them with a fresh salad bursting with small treats. This is exactly my kind of meal.  I made the recipe up on the fly. 

Grab a large pasta type bowl. Fill your bowl 3/4 full with mixed salad leaves.


1/2 chopped tomato 

1/4 sliced red capsicum

Grated carrot to taste

Add morsels of antipasto (I had 4 black olives, 2 slivers of sundried tomato and about 4-5 tiny squares of marinated feta)  these are in it as treats not as the stars of the salad

Now put shredded chicken breast on top (I used about 200g) 

2 boiled eggs cut in half length wise

1/3 of a ripe avocado diced 

Now pile a generous amount of the yummiest dressing onto the top. 

The dressing is made with mostly Greek yogurt so it’s an excellent protein source and will fill you up. 

My yummy scummy dressing recipe:

1/4 cup sweetened breakfast Greek yogurt (unsweetened would work but is more tart- an alternative would be to mix  a little low fat mayonnaise in but that’s sweetened anyway).  Or just taste the unsweetened dressing and add a little sugar to your taste.

2 teaspoons of gherkin relish 

Mix together.  Now that wasn’t hard was it?  

This stuff tastes amazing in potato salad if you like that. 

There you go.  Salad with copious protein and vegetables.
