Crunchy veggies bursting with vibrant jewel colours; moist roast chicken and a creamy dressing infused with country herbs… Like the sound of it? So do we! We like it even more that it’s almost no work.

What you will need

  • ½ cup low fat plain yoghurt
  • Half a roast chicken, (let someone else do the work – buy it at your local deli!)
  • ¼ cup low fat/low cal mayonnaise
  • Small red cabbage, very finely shredded
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and sliced any way you like
  • Zest of one lemon, finely grated
  • 10 radishes, finely sliced
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 packet edamame
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • Punnet of micro herbs and baby salad leaves
  • 2 tsp Natural Herbs and Spices Country Herbs


Mix all the dressing ingredients together and set it aside so the flavours can infuse. Flake the chicken. Plate up all the salad ingredients, top it with flaked roast chicken and spoon over dressing.
