Dinner party

Salads, always great and look at this beauty!

My brother came for dinner this week, he lives in a student house with a very filthy kitchen. So that means he almost never cooks, eating take aways and pre packed food in the grocery stores is his way of life. I'm trying to let him make healthier options, but he is just not so much in to clean food as well I guess. Well he does love salads, so I made this big beauty for him. Filled up with protein from the smoked chicken, healthy fats of the avocado, of course lots of veggies for vitamins and some beans for extra carbs and protein.

Ingredients
serves 4

450 gram smoked chicken
2 courgettes
2 bell peppers
alfalfa
200g cherry tomato's
a few big hands fresh spinach
1 cucumber
one jar white beans or chickpeas
1,5 avocado
cottage cheese

for the dressing
pomegranate vinegar
olive oil
salt and pepper

Simple heat up a grill pan and cut your courgette and bell peppers roughly. Give them a swirl of olive oil, salt and pepper and grill until browned and done. In the meanwhile roughly chop up your spinach and divide in a huge bowl. Cut the cucumber in fours, just like the cherry tomatoes and divide over the spinach. Next up drain the beans, rinse with water and divide on top. Now it's time for your grilled veggies, chicken in stripes, avocado around for a great look and just some dots of cottage cheese here and there. A bit of alfalfa around and drizzle with the salad dressing. Ready in 20 minutes and tastes amazing.

Serving suggestion: I served the salad with some sliced of spelt bread, my home made spelt crackers and some light herbed cream cheese.
