I feel as though there are no rules with salad. You can make anything a salad – add lettuce or some leafy mix and HEY-PRESTO you have a volume filled bowl of goodness that can be deceivingly filling and tasty.
Until I started body building I rarely ate salads. “That is rabbit food!” I would protest at the sight of anyone tucking into their salad and making out as if they enjoyed it. “You don’t really enjoy the salad Susan – we all know you are lying”
However, I had to eat my own words – now in salad form. I was getting hungrier every day, my training intensity was increasing and my food was getting lower. I was forced to start getting creative with my food but I refused to resort to bland tasteless meals and pretend I liked them. I knew the only way I would survive sticking to this lifestyle long term is if I actually enjoyed the food.
And so then – Super Salads were born.
Chicken Korma Super Salad
What you will need:
- Chicken breast diced- I used 130g
- Pataks Korma Paste – 6g (about a teaspoon)
- Chobani Plain Yogurt less than 0.5% fat – 20g
- Zucchini diced – 100g
- Broccoli chopped – 100g
- Brown Onion diced – 50g
- Red Capsicum diced – 50g
- Red Onion diced – 30g
- Cucumber – 50g
- 1 baby Cos Lettuce chopped
- Shallots chopped – 20g
- Water – 100ml
Use a non-stick deep pan preferably with a lid and set to a low heat. Place chicken, zucchini, brown onion, capsicum, broccoli and 100ml of water all in the cooking dish place lid on and let simmer on low heat until chicken is cooked through. Stir occasionally.
Meanwhile add your whole chopped baby cos, red onion and cucumber to a large dinner bowl.
Once chicken is cooked through and veges are soft, add the teaspoon of Korma paste and stir through.
Pour entire cooked dish over your salad bowl and top with the Chobani and sprinkle of shallots.
It is a HUGE bowl of food and the Korma paste is just enough to add a big punch of flavor to the dish.
