Salad Ingredients

  • 2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced 
  • 1 pack mixed salad greens (150 g)
  • 1 avocado, sliced or cubed
  • 1 cucumber, half-moon sliced
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Dressing Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coriander (20 g)
  • 1/4 cup tahini (60 g)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, grill, and cut into slices.
  2. Cut the remaining vegetables.
  3. Prepare the dressing. Add the coriander, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and water into a blend or food processor and blend until smooth. 
  4. Add all the ingredients into a bowl, add the dressing on top and serve immediately.


Cut vegetables in different shapes: We eat with our eyes first! Cutting the fruit and vegetables in different sizes and shapes adds texture and makes the salad look even better.

Store the dressing on a different container when meal prepping: Make sure you add the dressing when it’s time to eat so that your salad doesn’t get soggy.

Prevent the avocado from turning brown: If you’re making this salad ahead, brush the avocado with lemon juice to prevent it from turning brown.
