1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1-2 tsp honey
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups cooked skinless, boneless chicken, cut into cubes
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1 large green pepper, diced
1 cucumber, seeds removed and diced
5 plum tomatoes, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1/4 cup fresh chives, minced
Combine & mix all of the salad dressing ingredients. Set aside. In a bowl, add all of the salad ingredients. Pour 2 tbsp of salad dressing on each salad portion.
To make an individual mason jar serving, add ingredients in this order – first add 2 tbsp salad dressing, chicken, chickpeas, green pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, cilantro and chives. It’s important to keep the more delicate greens and vegetables away from the salad dressing. When ready to eat, shake and serve.
