All good ingredients with contrasting textures and healthy. The chicken is poached in lemon juice and olive oil to give it a bit more flavor (juice of half a lemon and one tbsp. olive oil, season with salt and freshly ground pepper or even better lemon pepper). Baby kale is preferable to kale which can be a bit tough. Secret ingredient – a little bit of celery salt sprinkled over at the end.
2 poached chicken breasts – cut into small pieces
1 medium size head of fennel – diced
2 oz. baby kale – chopped
1 avocado – diced
Celery salt (optional)
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, pour over dressing and mix well together. Sprinkle with a little celery salt
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix mustard and lemon juice first until smooth then add the oil and seasonings. Best made in a jar with a lid so you can shake it until it emulsifies.
