  2. 1/2 Haas Mexican avocado
  3. 1/2 large cucumber
  4. 1/2 pack cherry tomatoes
  5. 1 chicken breast
  6. 1/4 tsp turmeric
  7. 1/4 tsp cumin
  8. 1/4 tsp soy sauce (or balsamic)

  17. 1/4 cup olive oil


  1. Wash and slice the veggies (cucumber, tomato) and put aside.
  2. Wash and strain the salad pack. Cover and put it in the fridge so the leafy greens stay fresh, cold and crisp.
  3. For the chicken: lightly marinate the chicken breast with turmeric, cumin and drizzle of soy sauce. Grill on each side until golden brown (about 5 mins on each side). Slice and set aside.
  4. For the goat cheese: Set aside 3 bowls. Bowl #1: buttermilk egg mixture (mix 1 cup milk with 1 tsp vinegar then add the egg and continue mixing until combined). Bowl #2: Mix All-purpose flour and a pinch of white pepper. Bowl #3: breadcrumbs. Take the cold piece of goat cheese and dip in the bowls in this order: Bowl 1, Bowl 2, Bowl 1, Bowl 3.
  5. Heat a skillet with olive oil. Transfer cheese immediately to skillet and cook until golden brown on one side, then flip and continue cooking till the cheese is coated with a golden crisp. Set aside.
  6. Slice 1/2 avocado thinly and spread with the base of your hand.
  7. Assembly: Place the mixed greens on the bottom and along the side of the plate place the cucumber, sliced avocado, tomatoes and chicken. Place the cheese in the center.
