Avocado Salad with Chicken

Looking for a fresh low-carb meal salad?

Then this low-carb salad with avocado and chicken is perfect! This healthy salad is light, flavorful and super easy to make. You only need a few basic ingredients and you can have it on the table within 30 minutes. The salad consists of avocado, marinated chicken, cucumber, tomatoes and red onion. Very simple, but super tasty. We briefly marinated the chicken in a homemade spice mix.

It is also possible to use a ready-to-use spice mix. Then choose a spice mix with few carbohydrates. We served the salad with a fresh dressing of lime and olive oil. In short, a delicious meal salad with lots of vegetables and few carbohydrates. Ideal to eat for lunch or dinner on a hot summer day.

Tips: We fried the marinated chicken cubes in the frying pan, but you can also grill them on the barbecue. Use two whole chicken breasts for this, so that they stay nice and juicy. You can also add extra ingredients to the salad, such as eggs or lettuce, if desired.

You can keep the salad in the fridge for up to 2 days after preparation. Put a little lemon juice on the salad, if necessary, so that the avocado does not discolour. I hope you like it! Check out our other salad recipes for more inspiration.
