Springtime and Salad
I went on with my shopping and bought some cabbage, rice vinegar, slivered almonds, and a bag of frozen chicken tenders. I have all the ingredients and sometime soon I'll make the salad. Here's the recipe.
6 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
1/2 c. Mayonnaise
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. Sesame oil
Blend together all ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk or mixer. Refrigerate while you work on the salad.
2 pieces of Crispy Chicken Strips (frozen or from the deli) or leftover grilled chicken (that is what I used)
Bagged salad with assorted lettuces, cabbage, and vegetables
Bagged broccoli slaw
1 Tbsp. sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 c. fried won ton strips (optional- we opted to not use them)
1/4 cup mandarin slices, drained well
Bake the chicken strips according to the package directions (if you bought frozen ones) or reheat grilled chicken. Cut up the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Mix together a large handful of the lettuce salad and the broccoli slaw. Top with cut up chicken, almonds, won tons and madarin slices. Drizzle the dressing on top. Serve immediately.
I will put some chow mein noodles on top instead of won ton strips. I don't think that they put the broccoli slaw in at the restaurant, but I think it's a good idea. I have all the ingredients in the house and now I can make it.
Springtime and a salad...what a great combination. It sounds kind of untimely what with the east coast bracing for a huge snowstorm. I am praying for all the bloggers in the storm's path.. good luck...hope you are all prepared.
