Smoked Chicken & Orange Salad

My dish - It tastes as good as it looks.
Sunrise, assisted living specialists in the UK have a team of award-winning chefs to create delicious healthy meals, perfect for a New Year health kick, and they shared this light, tasty, and refreshing recipe with me - which I've recreated.

With all this cold weather at the moment why not bring the sunshine to your kitchen, with this beautiful Smoked Chicken & Orange Salad.  I love salads and when hubby and I have both have had a busy day; or week in this case, it is nice and refreshing to be able to mix together a simple, easy and tasty salad together and enjoy for dinner.

I would never even think to add orange to a salad, but my gosh, it was amazing, it complimented the dressing, along with the chicken, and the whole dish was a pleasure to eat.

This is so easy, you have to give it a try. 


¹/3 iceberg lettuce 
240g smoked chicken breast – sliced 
¼ oak leaf lettuce 
½ orange – peeled and segmented
½ punnet of cherry tomatoes – halved 
¼ cucumber – diced 
70ml olive oil 
35ml white wine vinegar 
Pinch of salt and pepper


Using a mixing bowl, combine the iceberg lettuce, oak leaf lettuce, chicken, halved cherry tomatoes, orange segments and diced cucumber together. 

Whisk together olive oil and white wine vinegar with salt and pepper. 

Serve the salad onto your plate and drizzle the dressing over the salad.
