I doubled this for two and added 1/2 a chopped chilli to the avocado mix and a handful of crispy bacon lardons to the chicken mix. Made a tasty summer dinner, will definitely make again, maybe with fresh broad beans instead of soya.

Made this last night, but doubled it for two people, it was fresh, interesting and filling. We used peas rather than soy beans as that's what we had in the cupboard.
