Mixed shredded carrot & beetroot salad with poached chicken & homemade dressing

A fresh summer salad that is sweet, light, fresh and filling at the same time. I also threw together this homemade salad dressing today and it turned out well.


  • 1 cup mixed salad leaves
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup shredded beetroot
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 80g cooked chicken (I poached mine)
  • Sprinkle of dried raisins
  • Sprinkle of coconut flakes


  • 1 tbl olive oil
  • 1 whole lime, juiced
  • 1cm ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp seeded mustard
  • Pinch of salt


Simply combine all ingredients and add the dressing!
