Coach Rachel's Super-Power Salad

From the kitchen of MRT coach and professional triathlete Rachel Kiers...

Choose your own preferred amounts of the following:
  • Grilled chicken (Rachel chops up some chicken breasts and adds lemon and herbs in the fry pan)
  • Strawberry
  • Cucumber
  • Orange pepper
  • Quinoa
  • Black beans
  • Red onion
  • Spinach/greens
  • Almonds - slivered or whole
  • Shredded carrot
And for the dressing, Rachel uses a Curried Mango Vinaigrette recipe that she found online: 
  •  3/4 cup mango chutney
  • 2T lemon juice
  • 1T peanut oil
  • 1t honey
  • 1/4 cup mint
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • salt/soy
  • lemon zest
The vinaigrette will be good in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

 Rachel is KNOWN for her culinary prowess -- she keeps things simple (ie meals don't take hours to prepare), nutritious, and loaded with flavour.  Have a go at this recipe and enjoy!

Thanks Rachel!
