Smoked chicken and Avocado Salad

20160112_221007[1]

Vegetables and fruits are good for you because they help to move your bowels thereby preventing accumulation of toxins. You should have “five a day” that is at least three portions of vegetables and two portions of fruit a day.

You need:

Lettuce roughly torn

Cucumber cut into crescents

Tomatoes cut into big chunks

Avocados peeled and cut

Smoked chicken

Onions (optional)

Salad cream (or dressing of choice)

You do:

Simply combine the ingredients in layers and serve with dressing of choice. I love raw onions and so added it to just mine instead of the general bowl.

Bon appetit
