Chicken with Longan and Macadamia Salad

Posted by nick musica on

The 'dragon's eye' or lychee is a perfect addition to this salad, adding a brilliant pop of sweetness to the refreshment of the mint and lemon. It's a perfect, healthy meal for those warm summer days when you want to eat something light that doesn't leave you feeling heavy. 

If you are looking for ways to make this vegan or vegetarian, try substituting the chicken for quinoa or couscous.

  • 1/4 cup raw macadamia nuts
