At a certain point over the Christmas/New Year break, all of us yearn for a culinary breather.
An end to the eggnog, ham and Champagne. A meal that isn’t 1,200+ calories (before the wine!).
Which is where – thankfully – this clever salad comes in.
Repent and enjoy.
2 chicken breasts, poached and thinly sliced
1 Lebanese cucumber, diced
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
Juice of two small limes
1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 tsp palm sugar
- Mix together the lime juice, chilli, fish sauce, oil and palm sugar and correct the flavours.
- Mix together the cucumber and tomatoes and arrange on plates. Arrange the sliced chicken over the vegetables.
- Spoon over the dressing, garnish with the coriander and serve with the lime wedges.
