Lemongrass, Chicken & Papaya Salad



A few of you have asked me for some healthy packed lunch ideas, well this salad is perfect. What I would do is deliberately make extra so that you can enjoy a good portion the following day. If you want to bulk out this recipe, then add cooked rice noodles and it will be delicious.




4 cooked chicken breasts - torn or sliced

200g mangetout

2 red pepper - finely chopped

2 handfuls bean sprouts

1 papaya - seeds removed and roughly chopped

2 tablespoons cashews

Optional - sesame seeds and coriander to serve



1 lemongrass - outer tough leaves removed and chopped as finely as possible

1 clove garlic - crushed

2 teaspoons grated ginger

Juice of 2 limes

1 teaspoon fish sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 chilli - finely chopped

2 teaspoons honey



Shake the dressing ingredients in a jar and set aside. Mix the salad ingredients in a large bowl or platter. Drizzle with the dressing and serve.
