Please, take a moment to fully appreciate the beauty of this salad. I’m not only talking about the colours of the rainbow presented on the plate, but also the play of textures. I hardly ever say this about salads, but this plate of salad right here should be crown the queen of salad bowl. It is that amazing, so much so I ate it for 3 days consecutively. I could have this for lunch every single day. Yes, it is that good.
I mean, the crunch from the cucumber, sharpness of the red onions, sweetness of the cherry tomatoes, creamy avocado, and don’t even get me started on that warm spiced chicken. The dressing was creamy, tangy, with a little heat to it. This is honestly one of the BEST salad that I have ever made in my entire life.
Did I also mentioned that it is Whole 3o compliant? Just use compliant mayo, which you can easily make your own with the video recipe found here. To tell you the truth, writing this post is making me extremly hungry. Guess what I’d be making myself for lunch again tomorrow? 😀

Hello! Thank you for sharing. May I know where to get nice avocados? The Ones from ntuc always has black stringy bits.

Hi Cassie, you are most welcome. I normally get my avocados from ntuc finest. The black stringy bits will usually mean that it’s overly ripe. Peel back the cap at the top of the avocado where the stem is. A good avocado peels away easily and you see green underneath. If it is brown then it’s too ripe, if it doesn’t come off easily, it’s not ready.
