Cajun Chicken and Corn Salad

Cajun Chicken and Corn Salad

Salads are my favourite type of food to prepare. It allows me to be as creative as possible whilst still keeping it as a healthy meal.
I will be posting various salad ideas on my blog which will include some unique flavours and combinations.

Salads make a great starter, appetizer or a light lunch. If you struggle to get your family and kids to include raw fruits and vegetables in their diet, then you definitely need to give my salads a try and you would definitely impress them.
This chicken and corn salad was inspired by a similar salad that I had tasted whilst dining at Markette in Dubai. It was fresh and delicious and filling as well.
I decided to try out this salad at homeย  for my family. I had to replicate this salad by remembering the taste and sight of the elements that I had eaten and I managed to come up with my own creation.
Give this salad a try for a light meal and you will definitely have the family coming back for more! Hope you enjoy!
