This is what we had for dinner tonight...
3 Tbsp. thawed limeade concentrate
1/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. dried minced onion
1 tsp. ground mustard
1 package (6 ounce) fresh baby spinach
Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the vinegar, sugar, onion, mustard and salt. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady pattern. Stir in poppy seeds. I made the dressing ahead of time and put it in the fridge. It just needed to be mixed up a bit before dinner but it was great!
Divide spinach among four salad plates, to with strawberries, peas, onion and chicken. Drizzle each serving with 2 Tbsp. dressing and sprinkle with pecans. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftover dressing.
A bit about this blog...
I do not profess to be a culinary artist. I wouldn't even call myself a good cook...but I do love to cook and I love to eat! In January 2011 I began trying to "mix it up" if you will. I wanted to find some new recipes to throw into our usual and boring routine. My original goal was to cook something new every night for a week. That turned into two, then three and now...I just want to keep cooking, baking and eating! It has been so fun and my confidence in cooking has grown. I will probably (most likely, actually) never create my own recipes. I just want to share the ones we have tried and enjoyed and I will always give credit where it is due! I love this new hobby of mine and I hope you can find a recipe or two that you like as well!
