One of my favourite meals of the day is lunch, and it's often made more remarkable by a chicken salad with a CBD-infused lemon dressing. It's a light but filling dish that you can prepare for lunch and dinner. You can serve it on casual weekdays for your family or on a fancy dinner night with your date. Totally impressive for onlookers but simple for you. 



Ingredients to prepare:

 

  • 2 spoonfuls of olive oil
  • 4 chicken thighs (remove the skin and the bones)
  • Salt and pepper (season according to taste)

 

For the salad dressing:

 

  • A spoonful of mustard
  • Juice from one and a half lemon (squeezed: you have an option to add a dash of zest as well)
  • CBD oil (amount should be according to what the written instructions regarding dosage recommend)
  • 2 spoonfuls of organic honey (avoid synthetically sweetened honey because it’s just basically sugar)
  • A quarter cup of mayonnaise
  • Two cloves of garlic (grated)

 

For the vegetable salad:

 

  • A ripe avocado (sliced in half vertically: take out the seed and carve its fleshy insides)
  • Half of a cucumber (washed and sliced thinly)
  • 10 or more cherry tomatoes (washed and sliced)
  • Half of a radish (washed and finely sliced)

 

Tools to use

 

  • Pan and tongs for cooking the chicken parts
  • Grater for garlic and taking the zest from the lemon skin
  • A cup for measuring mayonnaise
  • Knife for slicing vegetables or for shredding your chicken
  • Small bowl for the dressing mixture
  • Spoon or small spatula for stirring the dressing and carving the fleshy insides of the avocado
  • Salad bowl and a pair of salad spoons



Instructions:

 

  1. After removing the skin and bones of your chicken thighs, rub their surfaces with olive oil. Then, season each side with salt and pepper. 

 

  1. Put your pan over the stove and turn your heat into medium-high. 5 minutes is basic but once you feel that heat is emanating from the surface of the pan, put your chicken on it. Once your chicken turns brown, this means that that side is cooked. Turn regularly and make sure that each side is cooked well and even. Set them aside for cooling.

 

  1. In a bowl, mix the mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice, mayonnaise, garlic, CBD oil, and honey. Stir the mixture well and season according to taste. 

 

  1. Once your chicken thighs cool down, shred them using your hands or knife, into bite-sized pieces.

 

  1. In a salad bowl, add your vegetables, namely:

 

  • A ripe avocado (sliced in half vertically: take out the seed)
  • Half of a cucumber (washed and sliced)
  • 5 or more cherry tomatoes (washed and sliced)
  • Half of a radish (washed and finely sliced)

 

  1. Pour in the dressing with the vegetables and add your shredded chicken.

 

Extra tips!

 

  1. Pair the salad with a crunchy toast and wine.

 

  1. You have the option to separate the chicken from the salad mixture. The salad can stand for itself but throwing in some protein like chicken is nice.

 

  1. This recipe ideally serves one person. Add more serving by multiplying the amount of each ingredient.

 

  1. Tell the other person that you're planning to infuse CBD oil into this salad before cooking this for them.

 

  1. Lastly, don't forget to experiment and have fun!
