CBD infused dressing drizzled over a succulent Chicken Salad. 

Warmer weather on the horizon, a refreshing salad for Lunch seems like the order of the day, and what could be more delicious than a juicy chicken salad?

Full of goodness to prepare you for the afternoon. 

What you’ll need:

• 4  chicken thighs, skinless and boneless, sliced• 2 tbsp olive oil

For the salad and dressing:

• 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

• Zest and juice 1½ lemons

• 2 tsp clear honey

• 1 ripe avocado, finely sliced

• ½ cucumber, sliced

• Cherry Tomatoes sliced

• 100g radishes, finely sliced

Start by rubbing 2  tablespoons of olive oil over your chicken pieces, before seasoning this with salt and black pepper, which has some amazing benefits.

Then heat your chicken in a frying pan of a medium-high heat for around 10 minutes, turning regularly to ensure that each piece browns evenly.

Once your chicken is cooked, set this aside in a large salad bowl for cooling.

When it comes to making your CBD-infused dressing, simply mix a tablespoon is Dijon mustard with lemon zest and around two tablespoons of lemon juice.

Then add one-quarter cup of mayonnaise and up to two cloves of garlic (depending on taste), before infusing the mix with a 2 drops of original CBD oil.

Stir your dressing until this is emulsified, seasoning with salt and pepper as you do so.

Then, simply add your choice of chopped vegetables to the mix, with cucumber, radishes and avocado adding taste and texture in equal measure.

At this stage, all that is left is to stir in your chicken pieces and serve!
