Special Visitor Salad!

This weekend we had a very special visitor.  My sister is in town! She has to travel a lot for work, between Cape Town and London so when she does come to London - we try and catch up as much as possible.

Friday I got off work at the usual time and ran home to clean the house in preparation.  I am pretty OCD when it comes to cleaning our flat so I definitely like to get it done when there is no one else home :)

For dinner on Friday night, I was planning a salad, similar to what we had enjoyed a little while ago.  But with a few alterations.
Figs are one of those things that you either love or hate.

I cooked the chicken with some paprika, cayenne pepper and chilli powder as seasoning.

This salad is starting to be a favorite in our house. I don't mind a salad every now and then, as long as it doesn't look or taste like a typical salad.

  • 1 bag of Sainsburys bistro salad
  • Figs
  • Chicken seasoned with paprika, cayenne pepper and chilli powder (then pulled)
  • Avocado
  • Green onions
  • Red onions
  • Asparagus spears
  • Walnuts (chopped finely)
  • Feta cheese
  • Dressing with Greek yoghurt, wholegrain mustard, honey, paprika, homemade chilli oil and a sprinkle of paprika (in keeping with the theme of the chicken!)
It was certainly a hit and it was very quiet in the room while the eating was going on.  Usually a good sign right?
