Paleo Chicken Salad With Avocados + Herbs
Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free
1 1/2 cups leftover organic roast chicken, shredded or chopped
1 lb savoy cabbage, shredded
1 ripe avocado, stone removed, diced
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)
3 Tbsp lemon juice
small handful mixed herbs, torn (tarragon, parsley and chervil)
sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
2 Tbsp pinenuts, toasted
Mash the avocado lightly to a creamy and slightly chunky texture in a bowl, then add the cabbage, roast chicken, olive oil (if using) and lemon juice and give it a good toss through so the avocado dresses the salad evenly.
Season with salt and freshly cracked pepper. Arrange the salad onto a platter and sprinkle with fresh mixed herbs and pine nuts. Serve.
