Nothing shouts, 'Laid back and lovin' it', like a gorgeous chicken salad.
It means so many things - that we're smugly in the throws of summer and that we're festive-season busy and need quick-fixes.
Here are 3 super-easy, updated, healthy and pocket-friendly options to try for yourself.
Harissa chicken and roast vegetable salad - Absolutely divine with an African spice kick and delicious sweet potato. See the gorgeous gallery for some step-by-step help.
Roast chicken and grilled peach salad - A doddle to make and really high in the flavour stakes.
Asian chicken salad - This salad packs a real punch in terms of classic, fresh, limey Asian flavours, but it's also uber-healthy.
