I chose a salad like this for lunch the other day and it was so healthy (I immediately felt fitter after the first mouthful!) and tasty that I had to try it at home. Omit chicken and you have a great vegetarian/vegan salad.
Take some crispy lettuce and line a serving bowl with it.
Top it with the following, arranged however you like:
Poach a chicken breast, let cool, and cut into bite-size pieces
Take a red pepper, de-seed and chop into little pieces.
Hard boil a couple of eggs and, when cool, cut into 1/8ths.
1 x can of black beans, rinsed and drained
Handful of dried cranberries
Handful of cashew nuts – roughly chopped
Drizzle over some balsamic vinaigrette made by combining 1/3rd cup of extra virgin olive oil and 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar whisked together.
