Jump to Recipe

Here’s a quick salad recipe for a light lunch.  The chicken is steamed in the Varoma after being marinated in garlic and lemon juice.  Green beans are added to the Varoma towards the end of the cooking time.  The salad is made up of the green beans, some baby spinach, cherry tomatoes and parsley.  I’ve picked a light lemon juice and olive oil dressing to tie the whole thing together.
