Chicken Salad With Citrus Chilli Dressing

Serves 6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 35 minutes   Rated:

I love a salad that can do duty as the entire meal, no fuss, less mess and this one is so easy you can make it all in advance and just assemble on demand. We love the colours, the taste and the bite.

The dressing itself can go with all sorts of cold meats and salads…don’t limit yourself to using it for this recipe only. Think fish as well, though use a little less dressing or you will literally taste nothing else. (I do like the strong flavours of coriander/cilantro, mint and chilli, but they can drown out a delicate fish, so approach with caution!)

You could skip the whole steaming the chicken breast bit and use a BBQ chicken from your local to make this meal even easier and cooler to prepare!
