Gluten free salad - chicken, orange & avocado

Published 17 October, 2006

Gluten free salad? Of course most salads should be gluten free, so who the heck came up with the idea of croutons? (Hands up those who have had a salad returned 'gluten free' in a restaurant because they've picked the croutons off). Sheesh.

Anyway, this salad really is gluten free, and not because it's had anything removed either. And it's very tasty indeed.

Chicken, orange & avocado gluten free salad

To serve 4 you will need...

Olive oil
4 chicken breasts
Juice and zest of a lime
2 avocados
3 oranges
4 spring onions, sliced finely
1 handful basil, chopped

How to assemble your tasty gluten free salad...

Cook your chicken breasts any way you like 'em. If you're going to fry them, it's a good idea to half them to make them less thick and so easier to cook without annihilating the outside. Squeeze the lemon juice over them just before taking them out of the pan.

Chop the avocado into smallish chunks and peel and segment the orange. Mix together in a bowl with a glug of olive oil, the lime rind, the basil and spring onions.

Arrange on the plate and you're away.

Optional extras: Toasted pumpkin seeds sprinkled over and/or finely chopped fresh red chilli.

That's a gluten free salad's that's satisfying to eat and easy to make, for lunch or dinner. And not a crouton to be found.
