warm chicken and yellow beet salad
Served in a single generous portion or in smaller cups reminiscent of tapas, this salad offers a delicious contrast between the crunchy, raw beet and the tender, juicy, mildly spiced chicken. The configuration of spices creates an explosion of different flavours in every bite. The dressing is on the light side, to give these taste sensations room to shine.
