This is one among my favorite summer Paleo dinners! salad Shawarma may be a very flavorful, fresh, and stylish dinner for every week . The vegetables are swayed with mint leaves and parsley, then topped with crispy cucumber, garden-fresh tomatoes, and a soft slice of shallots. Every bite is crispy, bright and bursting with flavor.

I usually serve with homemade ribbons, cucumber and tomato salad, Super fine hummus, and perhaps some yogurt sauces. Many tahini wearing addition to smear and dipped. the remainder remains pretty good and makes for a fast lunch and straightforward wrap subsequent day.

On the day that I felt very healthy and/or lazy, I opted for this chicken shawarma salad as a full plate substitute. I prepared a fast spice within the morning, then threw it with chicken where it planted with flavor within the refrigerator all day. 1 30-minute roast later, and that i had a simple , healthy Paleo dinner that everybody loves. Even the kid .

For the essential salad, i prefer to use the mixture of Romaine and butter lettuce that's tossed with chopped parsley and mint. this is often an ideal sweet, crisp, fresh blend. I found some pretty tomatoes on the market, so in them go, along side half a British cucumber and a few thinly sliced shallots.

Over the entire ensemble off with Tangy, bright tahini dressing and you bought a fresh, delicious salad ready almost half-hour .

EASY CHICKEN SHAWARMA SALAD RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:
Chicken Shawarma

  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 1/2 c. avocado oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1.5-2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

Salad

  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 head butter lettuce
  • 1/2 c. fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 c. fresh mint chopped
  • 2 c. cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 english cucumber seeded and sliced
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced

Lemon Tahini Dressing

  • ½ c. tahini
  • ¼ - ½ c. water
  • ¼ c. olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • sea salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a small bowl, add the lemon juice, avocado oil, salt, pepper, and spices and whisk. Place the raw chicken thighs into a gallon-sized zipper bag and pour the marinade over the chicken. Rub the marinade into the chicken with your (clean) hands, then press the air out of the bag, seal, and place in the fridge. Marinate at least a few hours, and up to overnight. I prepare the marinade first thing in the morning for an evening meal.
  2. When you're ready to cook, preheat the oven to 425. 
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it onto a rimmed baking sheet. Pour any excess marinade over the chicken. Roast for 30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked throughout. Set aside to cool slightly, then slice into 1/2" strips.
  4. While the chicken is roasting, prep the salad. Chop the lettuce and herbs, then toss to combine. Chop the tomatoes and cucumber, and slice the red onion.
  5. Place the tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper into a blender along with 1/4 cup of water to start. (I love using my Ninja blender to make dressings. The individual cups are the perfect size for small batch items like salad dressing!). Blend until emulsified. Add additional water to reach desired consistency. For salad dressing, vs. a dipping sauce, I use closer to half a cup, sometimes a bit more.
  6. Layer the tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions over the herb salad base. Top with the chicken, and then dress with tahini to taste. Serve immediately.
