Ingredients (serves 2):

2 handfuls baby English spinach leaves
½ yellow capsicum
50g activated sea salt & vinegar almonds

40g sun-dried tomatoes
1 Lebanese (short) cucumber
1 avocado

Preparation:

Put the spinach, capsicum, almonds, celery, sun-dried tomatoes, cucumber and avocado in a bowl. Toss together gently.

To make the dressing, put the vinegar, lime juice, lime zest and garlic in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Still whisking, drizzle in the olive oil, then add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Spoon the salad onto serving plates and arrange the chicken over the top. Drizzle with the dressing and serve.
