Ready Time

40 mins

Yields

4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Season the chicken strips with salt and black pepper.

Grill the chicken for 5-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it thinly. In a large bowl, combine the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and freshly squeezed lime juice.

Season with salt to taste. Dice the grilled chicken into bite-sized pieces and add it to the bowl with the mixed greens.

Stir in the diced avocado, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped cilantro.

Drizzle the lime juice mixture over the salad and toss gently to combine. Divide the salad among four plates and serve immediately.

Notes

Use the freshest ingredients for the best flavors, especially the avocados and cilantro.

For grilling the chicken, make sure the grill is hot before adding the chicken strips, and don’t press down on them while they’re cooking to prevent losing juices.

To prevent the avocado from browning, sprinkle some lime juice on it after dicing.

If you want a lighter dressing, use only one tablespoon of olive oil and adjust to taste.

Feel free to customize the salad to your taste by adding other veggies like bell peppers or carrots.

Consider preparing the ingredients ahead of time, but assemble the salad just before serving to keep everything fresh.
