    A powerful combination of flavours that's as fresh and indulgent as it is beautiful.

    When you’re not fancying a heavy meal, this chicken, fig and goat’s cheese salad is a great choice. Not only is it quick and simple to whip up, but it’s also got a great mix of vegetables, protein and dairy.

    What you'll need...

    For the salad:

    • 3 fresh figs
    • Smoked chicken breast
    • 100g soft goat’s cheese
    • 50g walnuts
    • 200g Green beans
    • 145g rocket leaves

    For the dressing:

    • Juice of 1/2 lime
    • Balsamic vinegar
    • Olive oil

    Step 1

    On a medium heat, you’ll need to fry off your chicken breast with a small amount of oil. This usually takes around 10-12 minutes, or until its juices run clear. Once it’s cooked, slice the breast into small chunks.

    Step 2

    Next you’ll to trim off the ends of the green beans, and boil them in slightly salted water – this takes around 5 minutes. Once boiled, drain the beans.

    Step 3

    While your greens are boiling, cut the figs into quarters, and a lime in half. Then, grab a small pot and squeeze in the juice of half a lime, and mix in the olive oil and vinegar, along with a pinch of pepper.

    Step 4

    Grab a plate and create a bed of rocket and green beans. Then you’ll need to scatter the chicken, figs and walnut within the leaves, and crumble the cheese on top.

    Step 5

    All that’s left to do then is drizzle the dressing and enjoy!
