  • saute pan


  • 1 large/entree salad from the diner that includes grape tomatoes, mesclun greens, sliced raw red onions and grilled chicken salad from the diner
  • ½ whole avocado ripe
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2-3 tsp olive oil extra virgin
  • ¾ tbsp turmeric ground, organic
  • 1 whole lemon squeezed
  • 2 tsp pink salt Himalayan
  • ¼ tsp pepper to taste, add more if needed
  • 2 whole Cassava flour tortillas cooked


  • Heat the saute pan with cooking spray and some avocado or olive oil on medium-high heat.
  • Shred the already cooked chicken and add it to the saute pan. Also, add the red onions to the saute pan.
  • Drop in the balsamic vinegar into the pan (stand away it may splash onto your clothes)
  • Combine the chicken, the onions and all seasonings and blend together until well mixed. Then set aside and turn off the heat.
  • Chop greens and tomatoes with a large knife or a salad chopper and put into a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl add the chicken and onion mixture and mix in the avocado until you have a chicken salad consistency. You can use your hands.
  • Add to salad, serve immediately and enjoy! And don't forget your Cassava flour tortillas!


I love Cassava flour Tortillas by Siete because they are so clean and certified gluten-free.  You can find them at whole foods, amazon, Thrive market and more.  If you cannot have Cassava flour be sure to check out their other ones, they have almond flour tortillas, chickpea flour tortillas, coconut flour and cashew flour tortillas.
