Fridays are for salads because salads are easy-to-make, light on the tummy and packed full of nutrients. Today, I am sharing a suya spiced chicken salad that will put a smile on your face. This salad is great as a light dinner with your entire family after a stressful day or week.
Suya spiced chicken & salad
For the suya spice chicken, I used suya spice I made at home. Making your own spice at home and storing saves you lots of time in the kitchen. All you have to do is rub your suya spice on the drumsticks and let it season to enhance taste or you can grill immediately. That works fine too.
The side that works perfectly for this suya spiced chicken is made from multicolored bell peppers, carrots, green and purple lettuce, red onions, sweet corn, red onions, and tomatoes. As you may have guessed already, I love to eat the rainbow! Not only are foods of different colors pleasing to the eyes, each color represents a specific range of nutrients that are essential for our health. More about eating the rainbow in another post. 🙂
Just remember, to include foods of different colors at every meal, that way, you are sure of nourishing your body with all of nature’s goodness.
SUPA tip: If you include spicy meats to salads, try to make the salad sauce as basic as possible in order not to overpower the flavors from meat with spicy salad dressings.
To dress my salad, I used this simple homemade salad mayonnaise. My lovelies, I must say this salad is definitely a must-make at your home because there’s no better way to enjoy a well-balanced meal that packs a ton of yum and nourishment for your body.
