Avocado summer salad


1.Preheat the barbecue to medium heat. Drizzle with oil, then barbecue the butterflied chicken on medium heat for 20 minutes, then low heat for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally.
2.Meanwhile, make the salad dressing. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth, adding water to reach your desired consistency. Season to taste.
3.Place salad greens on a serving platter or in a salad bowl. Quarter the tomatoes and place on top. Scoop, then slice or dice the avocados and add to the serving platter. Sprinkle with pine nuts and drizzle with dressing.
4.Chop cooked chicken into pieces. Serve with Avocado Summer Salad and perfect roast Lotatoes™.

We suggest using a meat thermometer for the butterflied chicken. Poultry should be fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 82°C. Thermometers should be placed in the deepest part of the poultry.
