Chicken Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

Chicken salad is one of those dishes that just seems to bring a smile to everyone’s face. It is easy, delicious and very good for you. I love how you can make a chicken salad shine by taking inspiration from around the world, using spice rubs for the chicken or exotic dressings and sauces. Always use free-range organic chicken, as it not only tastes better but is also better nutritionally for you. Free-range chickens eat a natural diet, which translates to a healthier product for our own bodies. There are thousands of recipes for green goddess dressing and this is one of my all time favourites. Please play around with it and create your own signature version!

  • 2 large handful cos lettuce torn
  • 3 radishes thinly sliced

  • To make the salad, gently wash the cos lettuce and dry. Combine the lettuce, radish and watercress in a bowl and gently mix with the walnut oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
