How To Make Chicken & Blackberry Salad…

Happy Sunday. Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Are you on the lookout for a nice and tasty salad recipe?

One with fruit inside?

Chicken & Blackberry salad anyone.

This chicken and blackberry salad not only looks beautiful but packs a punch when it comes to flavour. The soft chicken mixed with the juicy blackberries and the zesty lemon dressing is a winner.


How To Make Chicken & Blackberry Salad:
Serves: 2

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

You’ll need:

  • 2 slices walnut bread, ripped into small chunks
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • Bag of watercress
  • 50g feta
  • 100g blackberries

For the dressing:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • 2tsp lemon juice
  • 3 sprigs thyme, leaves only
  • 2tsp honey

What to do:

1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan. Put the bread onto an oven tray, drizzle with the oil and season well. Toast in the oven for 5 minutes until crisp.

2. Combine all of the dressing ingredients and season.

3. Put the chicken, watercress, feta and blackberries in a salad bowl or plate, add the croutons and drizzle with dressing. Toss well and serve.

Note: The flavour of walnut bread works well with blackberries but if you can’t find it then any bread will do.
