Ingredients

Chipotle Honey Vinaigrette

Salad

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 1 avocado, lightly mashed
  • juice from half a lime
  • 8 ounces halloumi cheese, sliced
  • 6 cups mixed greens
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 peach, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced
  • 1-2 cups shredded chicken
  • tortilla chips, fresh basil and toasted pumpkin seeds for serving

Instructions

  • 1. To make the vinaigrette. In a glass jar, combine the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, honey, chipotle peppers, cilantro, and salt. Shake to combine. 
    2. To make the rice. In a medium bowl, stir together the rice, avocado, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. 
    3. Heat a small skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the halloumi slices and cook for 1-2 minutes per side or until lightly golden. Remove and drain onto paper towels.
    4. In a large salad bowl, toss together the greens, bell pepper, peaches, jalapeño, and chicken. Toss lightly with a little of the vinaigrette. Sprinkle the rice over top and add the halloumi. Top with tortilla chips, fresh basil, and pumpkin seeds.
