Salads!!

As you may know I LOVE salads!  Not only are packed with nutritional benefit but there is so much variety that can be added to a big bowl of greens.  Today I'm posting a few recipes that we enjoy.

Chinese Chicken Salad


Coconut oil
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
3 t salt
¾ t pepper
1 egg
½ cup milk

Romaine lettuce
Red cabbage
Green cabbage or nappa cabbage

~I use half lettuce and half cabbage, all sliced and chopped thin. For the cabbage I use equal parts of the red and the green~ have enough of this mixture available to feed your family. I really don’t measure out the greens, I just fill a large bowl. 

1 carrot, grated
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
~other salad veggies based on what you like and what you have on hand
Cashews (enough for sprinkling on top of the salad)
Croutons 

 

Cooking the Chicken:

Heat the coconut oil in a fry pan until hot. Mix flour and seasonings in a bowl. Put the milk in a separate bowl and add the egg, stirring well. Dip chicken pieces first into the milk/egg mixture then coat them with the flour mixture and fry them for about 5 minutes in the coconut oil, turning while they cook. Lay on a plate with a napkin to drain while you cook the rest. They can sit in a warm oven until ready to serve.

 

Assembling the Salad:

Mix all salad greens and the carrot into a large bowl. 


Put the remaining veggies and nuts into separate bowls for serving ‘salad bar style’.


 

Serve this salad by putting the greens on plates, adding what ever other salad options you desire, then topping with chicken, cashews and croutons and then top with oriental dressing (recipe follows).

Oriental Salad Dressing
¾ cup honey
5T mayonnaise
6T white vinegar
¼ cup grey poupon mustard
½ t sesame oil
 
Put all ingredients into a small bowl and using a wire whip, stir until combined well.
