Lettuce chat about salads

When I first converted to a healthier based food palate it definitely didn’t come overnight, I had to get used to the tastes and find a new way of eating. Going from a 90% carb or junk food fuelled diet to a salad as a meal and not something to be picked off a burger took some convincing. This particular salad became my transition salad where I still felt full, I still enjoyed the flavours but I got a little more spinach into my diet! This is definitely not the healthiest of salads but it is a great balance of veg, protein and carbs to make a filling meal and you can easily skip the bacon to make it a little healthier! This recipe makes 2-3 salads depending on preferred size and can be served with warm toppings or cold.


  • 2 Cubed and cooked chicken breasts
  • 1 Packet spinach
  • 7 Boiled new potatoes
  • ½ Cup of lardons
  • ¼ Cup parmesan
  • 3 Tablespoons Pesto


  1. Wash spinach leaves and leave to dry
  2. Cut new potatoes into bite sized pieces
  3. Combine all ingredients on separate plates and pour pesto on top
  4. Bon Appétit!
