Description

Super easy spring mix salad is a healthy low-carb salad recipe you need; also, it is gluten-free and keto-friendly. Keep it, Keto, by using a keto salad dressing! The best thing about this salad is that it takes only 4 ingredients – salad leaves (spring mix), avocado, boiled eggs, and chicken breast. Obviously, you can use any other choice of protein!


Ingredients

Scale

810 cups of spring mix

1 whole avocado

2 chicken breasts (slice each in the middle; also makes it easier to cook)

3 boiled eggs

For Chicken dry rub:

½ teaspoon onion powder

¼ garlic powder

¼ tsp. dry thyme

A dash salt and pepper

¼ teaspoon seasoning powder (Knorr powder or Maggi cube)

½ teaspoon cornstarch (optional; I make all the time without cornstarch)

12 teaspoons of paprika

12 tablespoons of olive oil (to sear or sauté the chicken)


Instructions

In a clean bowl, combine the chicken and the dry rub, ensuring that the entire chicken gets the rub. Then in a clean pan, add one tablespoon of olive oil, allow warming up, and gently drop the chicken breast. Sear/sauté the chicken about 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through and ready. Do not overcrowd the pan; usually, I would sear two chicken breasts at one time. Set chicken aside until you need them

Roughly cut the spring mix; this step is optional, but I suggest it, especially if you have little kids. The salad leaves may become bulky for children, and therefore prevent them from enjoying their salad.

Assemble the dish by adding the cut/chopped spring mix salad leaves to a big bowl, slice the chicken, and add them. Finally, add the eggs, ensure to remove the shell and slice however, you desire.

Dress up with your dressing of choice, use keto salad dressing to this recipe keto. I used my light citrus dressing, and it was amazing. Enjoy!

Notes

You can make this salad vegetarian by skipping the chicken, and use fish instead.

Make it vegan by substituting chicken with tofu and getting rid of the egg.

Keep this salad keto by using a keto salad dressing.

The ingredients for the chicken rub is optional. Some People are used to seasoning their chicken with just salt, and pepper. If that is you, then do that.🙌🏾👍🏾
