A fresh take on an everyday salad
We discovered this South Beach Salad when we were in the Florida Keys. It's so delicious and easy to make!
1 (6 ounce) can water-packed tuna or fresh grilled chicken
1/4 cup light yoghurt
2 tbsp curry powder
handful of cashews
1/3 green pepper
1/3 cup chopped cucumber
1/3 cup chopped tomato
1/3 cup chopped avocado
1/3 cup chopped celery
2 cups freshly washed lettuce
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Mix the tuna or chicken with the yoghurt, curry powder and cashews. Place lettuce on plate, put chicken or tuna in the centre, and then place the other vegetables around the plate.
For the dressing mix the olive oil, limejuice, garlic, and pepper. Drizzle over the salad.
Mix it Up!
Feel free to use different vegetables and different types of lettuce. For a change you can put spices or sauces on your chicken or tuna. I used light yogurt and curry spices to make this chicken taste extra delicious, but feel free to expirement, as long as you choose low sugar and low fat options to keep it healthy.
