Nando's Salad - But BETTER!

Hello, today I thought I would share with you my recipe for a Nando's inspired salad. I'm currently on a little health kick, and I've been trying to find healthy meals which are equally dreamy as a burger and chips🍔🍟. This one is an absolute corker.

Ingredients (for single serving)
30g quinoa soaked and rinsed
180ml water
1 chicken breast  cooked and cut into chunks.
1/4 sweet potato cut into chunks
1/2 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp oil
Handfull of salad leaves (your choice)
1 tomato quartered and deseeded
chunk of cucumber
half an avocado sliced

1 tbsp olive oil
drizzle of Cider vinegar
juice from 1/2 a squeezed lime
drizzle of Nandos sauce

Turn oven to 180 °
Put Quinoa and water into a pan, bring to the boil. Reduce heat and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes until all water is absorbed. Leave to cool.
Meanwhile mix sweet potato, paprika and oil in a bowl. Put onto baking tray and cook for 15 minutes.
At this point make the dressing
Literally just put the ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
Once the quinoa and sweet potato has cooled you can assemble the salad.
(Leave some avocado, sweet potato and chicken for the top)
First put in salad leaves, followed by quinoa, tomato, cucumber, avocado, chicken and sweet potato.
Pour in dressing.
Toss leaves etc to disperse the dressing.
Then place remaining avocado, sweet potato and chicken on top.

Super simple but really tasty. You can also add other bits and bobs in, maybe some halloumi or red peppers.

Thanks for popping by!
