Simple Avocado Beet Salad

Did you know you can now buy cooked beets in little pillow packs? I found them in my produce department and now I’m hooked!

Roasting fresh beets isn’t always convenient or possible after a long day of work but now that I found these little pillow packs I can easily incorporate beets into my midweek meals.

You may not realize it but beets and avocado are a perfect pair. The earthiness of beets combined with the creaminess of fresh avocado is a great base for a quick salad. Add in some pre-cooked or leftover chicken for protein, pumpkin seeds for crunch, bring it all together with a splash of olive oil and chives, and you got yourself an amazing, nutrient-filled, tasty meal in minutes.

Best part? No cooking!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

6 oz. chicken breast, pre-cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/8 cup pumpkin seeds
1 tsp. dried chives
