It’s definitely starting to feel autumnal, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop eating salad.
Maybe you don’t even eat salad, you find it boring? Well for sure, the common combo of iceberg, cucumber, tomato is definitely boring. Try this jerk chicken salad. Not only is it very tasty but it’s hearty enough to fit well with the weather.
Do you need to dress it with oil? Not really. There are plenty of good fats in the chicken, cooking spray, olives and pumpkin seeds and you get a luscious mouth feel from the roasted vegetables. I like it with a drizzle of tangy balsamic vinegar which, incidentally, slows gastric emptying to help keep you full for longer.
Notice also it has every colour you need from your vegetables. Red, yellow, orange, green, purple. It’s nutritious, balanced, packed with fibre, filling, slowly digesting and delicious. It’s everything you could want! Why not give it a try?
