Step 3

Once you’re happy with the consistency add the parmesan cheese and mix through. Place in the fridge until you are ready to use.

Step 5

Put to the side until ready to serve. While your chicken is cooking chop your lettuce and slice your avocado and add to the salad bowl, add the dressing and mix. Top with thin slices of parmesan cheese and add the croutons.
