This super healthy and easy to make spring mix salad contains only four ingredients – greens, avocado, eggs, and chicken. Healthy eating is that simple; let’s not make it complicated.
8 – 10 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 alt and pepper
¼ teaspoon seasoning powder
½ teaspoon cornstarch
1 – 2 teaspoons of paprika
1 – 2 tablespoons of olive oil (to sear or sauté the chicken)
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, I highly recommend light citrus dressing. Enjoy!
You can make this salad vegetarian by not using chicken
You can also make it vegan by substituting chicken with tofu and getting rid of the egg.
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.
