It was shared by my younger sister, Kim, who so loves this “good for you” salad. She said, “I could eat this salad every day!” I am so grateful she is my sister and shares much of what she knows and likes with me. Today I’m happy to pass along her recipe for a healthy, low-carb + low-fat, composed salad to you.

Ingredients for the salad…
Thai Chili Lime Chicken Salad
Grill your chicken breast and chop all the veggies.  Let your grilled chicken rest for about 10 minutes, then slice chicken on an angle.  I always use my electric knife and love it.

Mix up the dressing.  For those (like me) that live a low-carb lifestyle, I use Stevia in moderation. It’s perfect for this dressing, adding sweetness without calories. The liquid is pricey, but a little goes a long way.

Toss the veggies with the dressing.

Crunchy, beautiful, light, and yummy! Try it and add your descriptive words! Like me, you may say, ” Aroi!” (delicious) ” Khor eak dai mai?” (can I have more, please).
