    Hi All,

    Any suggestions for substitutions to make this recipe BT compliant and a suggested serving size?

    Orange Slaw Salad

    Ingredients

    6 Oranges
    1 Wombok cabbage
    1.5 cups of cashews
    Bunch of shallots
    Bean shoots
    100g fried noodles
    1 Roast chicken
    Fruit Vinegar
    Hot English mustard
    Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Mayonnaise

    Method

    Preheat oven to 150°C

    On an oven tray place parchment paper and lay out cashews, roast for 5 – 10 minutes, than remove and let cool

    De-skin the roast chicken and shred

    Thinly slice the cabbage

    Peel and segment oranges

    Chop the shallots ommiting the white section

    To build the salad place the cabbage on a serving platter, scatter bean shoots, chicken, oranges, cashews and finally the green onions.

    In a separate bowl, place 40ml of fruit vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Dijon Mustard, 1 tablespoon of Mayonnaise and 80ml of Premium Robust Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Whisk together until the mixture is combined

    Pour over salad and serve!

    Hi Liz,

    Per person we would suggest weighing out the chicken to a serving size of 100g per trimmer.
    Take only 8 roasted cashews per trimmer (you could chop these to make them go further).
    Build the salad with the cabbage, bean shoots, oranges and shallots (all non- starchy carbs) and take 2 cups per trimmer and then mix through the 100g of chicken and cashews.
    You can mix up the full salad dressing but measure out no more than 2 teaspoons to pour over your salad at the end.

    As for the noodles, these would be considered starchy carbs and a serving size would be 1/2 a cup per trimmer. Opt for wholegrain noodles or pasta, or instead of noodles you could have the chicken salad with half a wholegrain pita bread.

    Kindest Regards,

    BT Nutritionist 🙂
