Chicken Bean Sprout Salad

Summer is here and I don’t know about you but I eat tonnes of salad at this time of year, it’s so easy and if I don’t have to stand over a hot stove in this weather, that’s good to me! But there is salad and there is salad! I’m not one for boring cucumber. lettuce and tomato, I like to try and find lots of different variety and mix things up a bit. I’m not normally into sweet and savoury mixed together but for some reason in salads I really enjoy the contrast.

This is a lovely, so easy to make summer salad. I really enjoy eating beansprouts for something different, they add such a crunch so you really feel like you’re getting a good meal. But this dish is so healthy, full of goodness, high in protein and healthy fats. Perfect for a lovely summer’s evening – what more could you ask for!
