Mexican Salad

Dave Schultz,

Saucers Café

Adobo style shredded chicken and the addition of nutrient rich superfoods hit the mark, giving this salad heartiness and nutritional clout. It’s easy to see why this salad has been a fan favourite at Saucer’s Café for years. It uses familiar ingredients, easy to find too. Chef Dave advocates combining robust flavours, contrasting textures and fresh greens make eating well a cinch.
