Power Salad


This salad is inspired by one I had at a restaurant called Milltown in Carrboro, NC and is a refreshing lunch packed with greens, chicken, citrus, and cashews.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  • Generous handful of fresh spinach
  • Generous handful of fresh arugula
  • 1 small handful of thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/2 cup sweet and smoky cashews
  • 1 orange, sliced into segments
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 ounces of sliced grilled chicken


  1. In a medium bowl first whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt together.
  2. Add the spinach, arugula, and cabbage and toss them in the dressing.
  3. Top with the red pepper, cashews, orange segments, grilled chicken, and feta.
