LEEK & SMOKED CHICKEN SALAD WITH ORANGE & MUSTARD DRESSING
COOKBOOK: FRESH - Women’s Weekly 501 Low Carb Recipe
This is a great salad with lots and lots of flavour and full of nutrients. There is a bit of time taken in preparing the vegetables but there is no need to cook a chicken, instead buy a BBQ chicken from your local supermarket and this will save some time.
This is the type of salad that is classified more like a main meal than a side dish.
A great summer salad for all!
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 leek (300g), sliced finely
1 large carrot, cut into matchstick slices
