Made this with some chicken I had previously grilled. It's very quick to prep if you already have protein cooked. The avocado dressing is so quick and quite tasty. I added a spoon of plain yogurt to mine just as an experiment, and I like the addition.

We had this for dinner using peas instead of beans. It was really filling despite being carb free and the avocado dressing was delicious. I wish I'd used a bit more Tabasco though for a little more kick.

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.
