My Favorite Summer Salad

It’s Summertime and it’s getting HOT and muggy here in Rhode Island! I don’t know about you guys, but at the end of a hot day, I don’t usually want to cook a hot lunch or dinner (or really have the stove or oven running) and I am not as hungry because of the heat. Salads and cold dishes are a staple for Summer eating! Oh and make sure you’re drinking your weight or goal weight in water to stay hydrated!

Ingredients:

Grilled chicken (let it cool a bit!) with brew pub chicken seasoning
1/2 small avocado
Handful of grape tomato’s cut in half
1/2 a cucumber

How to Make:

  1. Grill chicken, season with Brew Pub Chicken seasoning.
  2. Cut up tomato’s, cucumbers, and avocado. Store the other half of the avocado with some onions or lemon juice to help prevent it from browning.
  3. When chicken is done cooking let it cool a bit.
  4. Toss everything in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

If you don’t eat meat, feel free to skip the chicken or add in your favorite meat free alternative to get some protein!

Enjoy!
