What’s for lunch?  Here is a simple salad that is easy to pull together and will keep you fuelled. 

When making a salad you want to ensure you have the following components;

-lots of greens & vegetables (2-3 cups)

-protein (20-30grams)

-healthy fats ( 1 – 2 tbsp.)

This Tahini Chicken salad ticks all the boxes.  Lots of veggies, chicken for protein and the sesame seeds in the tahini adds some good fat (and flavour)!

You can combine the veggies & chicken to store ahead of time and make the dressing in advance as well.  Then all you need to do is mix them together when it’s time to eat!   This makes lunch really easy to grab and go!
