Course: Main Dish
Keyword: salad
Servings: 1 large salad
Calories: 541kcal



  • 2 cups of a combination of romaine and spring mix enough to fill an average pasta bowl
  • 3 oz rotisserie chicken shredded, 85g
  • 1/2 a small tomato chopped
  • 1/3 of a ripe avocado ~40g
  • 1/4 of a large beet chopped (you can add more if you want!)
  • a few slices of red onion thinly sliced
  • ~1-1 1/2 oz goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 4-6 sliced olives
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • oregano fresh or dry, to taste
  • fresh basil torn or sliced into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp balsamic optional, I add this later if I find the dressing isn't as acidic as I would like
  • 2 tsp white vinegar optional, again, adds some nice acidity to the salad



  • Add all of your ingredients to a pasta bowl.
  • Shake up your dressing ingredients in a small jar or bottle.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Add a little more white vinegar or balsamic if you want a little more flavour. Enjoy The Best Salad Ever!


*You can lower the carbs just by making a slightly smaller salad. Most of the carbs come from vegetables so I wouldn't be as concerned but in general, just make sure your total daily NET carbs come out to 20-50g depending on your diet and this will fit in nicely. :)
