Avocado & Aspargus Salad With Lemon Maple Chili Dressing

I made a salad. A really, really good salad!  Avocado & Asparagus salad with lemon maple chill dressing topped with chicken. Serves 2.


  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 1 avocado
  • A handful of diced onions
  • A handful of jarred jalapenos, diced
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • Drizzle of maple syrup
  • Sprinkle of chili powder
  • Sprinkle of garlic
  • Salt to taste
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Cooked & sliced chicken breast or chicken thighs


  • Boil asparagus for two minutes until it has softened some but still has a slight crunch. Drain water off & cool asparagus down with cool water. Add to large salad bowl.
  • Slice tomatoes, dice onions & jalapenos. Add to salad bowl.
  • To salad bowl add maple syrup, chili powder, garlic, dash of salt & stir to combine well.
  •  Cut avocado into cubes & drizzle with lemon juice, sprinkle with chili powder & dash of salt.
  • Add avocado to salad bowl. Give a very light stir to incorporate the avocado but be careful not to over stir or the avocado will become mushy.
  • Add chicken & serve.
