This is a firm favourite of Dale Pinnock’s, a salad that is popular around California and one of the first things on his list whenever he visits. This really does encompass each principle in his new book, The Medicinal Chef: The Power of Three: amazing nutrient density, very low glycaemic response and rich in fatty acids … Oh, and it tastes amazing too!
Chicken, Avocado and Blue Cheese Salad

1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
