What you need to do:
Place all the ingredients for the salad dressing into a medium sized bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper, give a good stir to combine and set aside until needed.
Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook the broccoli florets for 3-4 minutes, until just tender, then rinse in cold water, drain and place in a serving bowl.
Cook the bacon on a dry, non-stick pan over medium heat until brown and crispy. Set aside to cool, then break into smaller pieces.

Zucchini Balsamic Quinoa Salad
- 1 cup (180g) dried quinoa
- 2 cups (480ml) water
- pinch salt and pepper
- 1 ½ cups (185g) zucchini, chopped
- 1 medium tomato, chopped
- ¼ cup (25g) raw almonds, chopped
- ¼ cup (40g) red onion, chopped
- 1 small can chickpeas
- 3 tsp. fresh basil, chopped
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1 garlic clove
What you need to do:
Rinse the quinoa under cold running water for 2 minutes then place it into a small saucepan. Add in the water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and put on a lid on the pan. Let it simmer for 10 minutes.
While the quinoa is cooking, chop the zucchini and place into a pan with a little oil. Sauté for 4 minutes until brown on the edges. Do not overcook the zucchini or it will become soggy.
Chop the almonds, basil, tomato, and red onion into small pieces and place into a large bowl.
Open the canned chickpeas, drain into a colander and rinse before placing into the bowl with the vegetables.
Once the zucchini has cooled down add it to the bowl too.
When the quinoa has cooked, allow it to cool for 5 minutes, giving it the occasional stir. Now add the zucchini to the salad bowl with vegetables and chickpeas.
To make the dressing, mix the oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and crushed garlic clove into a small bowl and mix to combine. Pour over salad.
Serve the salad at room temperature or place in the fridge for 20 minutes to cool completely.

Santa Fe Chicken Salad
2x 5 oz. (280g) skinless, boneless chicken breast
- 4 cups (170g) mixed greens
- ½ cup (250g) canned sweetcorn
- ½ diced red onion, chopped
- ½ cup (75g) baby tomatoes, chopped
- ½ cup (90g) chopped dates, chopped
- 2 limes
- 1 avocado
Chicken Spice Rub:
- ¾ tsp. paprika
- ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
- ¼ tsp. powdered garlic powder
- ¼ tsp. powdered onion powder
- ¼ tsp. dried thyme
- ¼ tsp. ground allspice
- ⅛ tsp. salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tsp. honey or agave
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 tbsp. chopped coriander leaf
- small pinch salt and pepper
What you need to do:
Preheat the BBQ grill.
Mix the chicken rub spices together in a small bowl. Rub on both sides of the chicken breasts with a spoon or with your hands.
Place the chicken on the grill for 5-8 minutes on each side. The chicken is done when the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C).
While the chicken is cooking put 2 cups of greens into two separate bowls. Chop the onion, dates and baby tomatoes and divide equally into each bowl. Drain and rinse the sweetcorn from the can and measure out ¼ cup for each bowl.
Slice the avocado in half, remove the pit, peel off skin and slice. Cut the lime in ½ and squeeze the juice onto the avocados to stop them from browning.
To make the dressing, finely chop the coriander and garlic. Juice the limes to measure out ⅛ of a cup. Mix the oil, lime juice, garlic, coriander and honey, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Slice the cooked chicken and place on top of the salad. Pour the dressing over the two bowls. Serve immediately with an extra lime wedge and some fresh coriander.
This is a great prep ahead dish. Make this dish the day before and keep the chicken and dressing separate until ready to serve. Don’t slice avocado until ready to eat.
