Lunch in a flash: Tahini lemon chicken salad with broccoli

What's for lunch today? A variation on yesterday's theme of broccoli chicken salad. Today I made lunch using a healthy combination of chicken, barley and broccoli coated with a delicous dressing of tahini, yogurt and lemon. Yummy!

Tahini lemon chicken salad with broccoli

  • 1/2 cup cooked chicken, diced

  • 1/2 cup cooked barley

  • 1 cup blanched broccoli, diced

  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon tahini

  • juice from 1/4 of a lemon (about 1 tablespoon)

  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Blanch the broccoli: this means to cook until bright green and softened, but still with some crunch. See yesterday's posting for details!

  2. While the broccoli is cooking, dice the bell pepper. Toss the chicken, bell pepper, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper in your lunch container.

  3. When the broccoli is cooled, add to your salad and toss to coat. Enjoy!

This recipe is easy to double or triple!
