Paleo Poached Chicken Salad

This was just a thrown together dinner with a friend last night – in fact she was given the recipe at her kitchen tea which was on the weekend. But I think the combination of everything together just went really well, it was quick and easy and a perfect hearty but healthy dinner.

Method:

For the dressing: add all ingredients into a bottle and shake well. Voila!

For the salad: roughly chop all ingredients except asparagus, cashews, beetroot and chicken and place into your chosen salad bowl.

Bring a pot of water to the boil with the stock cube in it. In the meantime add 1tbsp olive oil and 1-2tsp balsamic vinegar to a pan, and cook asparagus and beetroot on medium heat for approx 5 mins or until cooked. When water in pot is boiling, add the chopped chicken and poach on high heat for approx 5 mins or until cooked through.

Throw all cooked ingredients onto the salad, add dressing and toss!!
