I've been loving keto eating but have found myself swaying in the past months to a not so clean version of keto. Now that summer is approaching I am going back to my clean eating roots and keeping my keto clean!! This salad fits right into that and totally hit the spot! The chicken marinade was awesome and also worked well as a dressing. Loaded with avocado and olive oil it has fats, it has protein, it has greens AND fit into my keto lifestyle. Check it out and let me know what you think!


Marinade/Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon (1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound (500 g) skinless, boneless chicken thigh fillets (or chicken breasts)

Salad:

  • 4 cups Romaine (or Cos) lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 large cucumber diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes diced
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives (or black olives), sliced (optional)
  • Lemon wedges to serve



Instructions

  1. Whisk together all of the marinade/dressing ingredients in a large jug. Pour out half of the marinade into a large, shallow dish. Refrigerate the remaining marinade to use as the dressing later.
  2. Add the chicken to the marinade in the bowl; marinade chicken for 15-30 minutes (or up to two hours in the refrigerator if time allows). While waiting for the chicken, prepare all of the salad ingredients and mix in a large salad bowl.
  3. Once the chicken is ready, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a grill pan or a grill plate over medium-high heat. Grill chicken on both sides until browned and completely cooked through.
  4. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes; slice and arrange over salad. Drizzle salad with the remaining UNTOUCHED dressing. Serve with lemon wedges
