Thai Chicken and Rice Salad
Health Coach Leslie Smoot from Real Foods Market made some delicious salad in the GTU kitchen today. This is the perfect time of year for a picnic by the lake! Toss a few good things together for a hearty salad that is very satisfying. Then stop by Real Foods Market for a few drinks and goodies to round out the meal. It’s that simple!

2 c. wild or brown rice, cooked ¼ cup almonds, sliced
2 c. chicken, cooked & sliced ¼ cup coconut flakes, unsweetened
