Stephanie's B-Energetic Mexican Salad (serves 2): 

  • 4 cups baby spinach

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 1 cup black beans

  • 4 oz cooked chicken or turkey, shredded

  • 1 tsp. cilantro

  • 1/4 cup salsa or 1 medium tomato, diced.

  • 2 tbsp. low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 1/4 tsp. chili powder 

  • 1 tsp. sweet onion, diced

Directions

  1. Divide spinach between two large bowls. 

  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 tsp. chili powder with cilantro, onion, chicken and black beans. Mix well. 

  3. Top each bowl with 1/2 of the chicken and black bean mixture, 1/2 of the salsa or tomato, cheese and avocado slices. 

This works well as a "salad in a jar" to take with you to work.  For the best results, top with cheese and avocado immediately before eating and keep the pit in the avocado to avoid having it turn brown.
