Nothing wrong with doctoring…

Thai inspired salad with Peanut Ginger Dressing

I just like having my ingredients, ya’know what I mean? Tonight I was bone tire, not wanting to cook anything, yet, didn’t want to succumb to unhealthy eating. Why waste the calories! It took me nearly a year to lose 35 pounds and it has been tough enough the last two to keep it off.  So tonight was a take-off on yummy lettuce wraps–converted to a salad and a little help from a prepared jar of dressing, some fresh cilantro and basil and a yummy Santa Fe Pepper. Dinner for 2!  What are you “doctoring!?”

Modified Ginger Peanut Dressing

1/3 cup Ginger Peanut Dripping Dressing/Cooking Sauce
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/8 tsp granulated garlic
pinch of cayenne pepper

Whisk together until smooth

Salad Greens for two
Mixed greens (napa cabbage, green leaf lettuce, romaine)
3 chopped green onions
1/2 carrot (1/4 cup) julienne
1 celery stalk, diced
1/4 yellow pepper julienne
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons diced Santa Fe Pepper
2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced on the diagonal

Assemble greens, mix fresh herb throughout, top with yellow pepper, onions, celery, and carrots. Drizzle 1/2 dressing on greens, then top with sliced chicken. Pour rest of dressing on chicken and sprinkle with diced red pepper.

  1. Yummm. This sounds like just the thing I was hungry for and I didn’t even know it. Honey, fire up the bbq cause I know what we’re having for dinner!

    We knew this week was going to be crazy so we bbq’d a big package of marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts to use as basis for lots of quick meals. Hope you have some good eating!
