DAY FORTY FIVE:

classic coleslaw + bbq honey thyme chicken thighs + greek tomatoes (chopped tomatoes tossed in evoo, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, salt & pepper)….I LOVE coleslaw!   I make my own dressing subbing out honey for sugar and almond milk for the milk and ya know what??  My family has no idea, it tastes just as good 🙂  Win!

DAY FORTY FOUR:

Grilled Teriyaki Beef & Veggies (carrots, celery, peppers, mushrooms & onions in a sauce of tamari, honey, orange juice concentrate, fresh minced ginger, garlic, white onion & chili peppers) on Zucchini Strips or “zucchini fettuccini” if you like…Pushing the limits on “salad” definition this eve I suspect…but it was worth the push, it was pretty good!

DAY TWENTY NINE:

Home at last!  Hurray, never been so happy to eat oatmeal and fried eggs and salad, good, real salad….  It being Mother’s Day, Richard took over cooking duties tonight and out came a roasted veggie salad, so roasted eggplant, asparagus, red and yellow peppers, red onion, garlic, on crunchy fresh romaine finished with fresh pineapple chunks and cherry tomatoes, with a gigantic chicken breast on the side (which I could only eat about 2/3’s of).  Just sprinkled a titch of balsamic vinegar and some salt and pepper to round it all out.  Hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day! 🙂

DAY TWENTY SEVEN:

Ohhhhh my…there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…so eating out is tough for those who are careful about what they consume….and travelling compounds this difficult situation….took the kiddies on a surprise quick trip to Vancouver on friday, so Wendy’s it was for dinner…I ordered a side salad (because I can’t spend $10 on a salad, just can’t, lol!) and a chili….and was so unsatisfied that I wound up eating basically an entire BAG of Heavy D’s kettle corn throughout the next couple of hours on the drive….uhhgggghhhhh….sigh….

chicken fajita salad

DAY TWENTY FIVE:

The Chicken Fajita Salad – the guys had chicken fajita’s tonight (chicken, colored peppers, zucchini, mushroom & onion seasoned with chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, couple tbsp’s salsa and chicken stock), so I put that mixture on a bed of coleslaw mix & the crunchy bunched up parts of iceberg lettuce, topped with chopped tomatoes, avocados and cilantro. Dressing was salsa and a few dollops of guacamole!  Crunchy, filling, really fresh, recommend!

Balsamic Salad Dressing

This is our go-to dressing in our kitchen.  Consistently good and goes great with almost any salad you can toss at it…haha!  Toss at it….oh sorry….This is a great ‘basic’ that can be adapted to make other dressings, for example, sub in red wine vinegar and a tbsp of dried oregano for a perfect Greek salad dressing, or, instead of sugar, sub in a tbsp of homemade strawberry jam for a strawberry spinach salad.
You can change it however you want to suit your needs but just be sure to keep the acid to oil ratio the same.
Let me know if you try this dressing and what you think! 🙂

Ingredients
 1/3 C balsamic vinegar
2/3 C extra virgin olive oil
1Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp sugar … (can substitute honey if you’d prefer)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder … (or 1 tsp minced fresh garlic)
1/2 tsp pepper
Method
In your prettiest jar (this is of paramount importance:), whisk together vinegar, mustard, sugar (or honey), garlic powder (or minced fresh garlic, which I used to do, when all I had was time to burn, lol), salt & pepper.  Once this is completely blended, start to slowly pour the oil in a steady stream, whisking the entire time.   And that’s it!  Double, triple the batch and keep it in your fridge for salads all week long.   And then promise me you’ll never but a nasty overpriced under-quality store bought dressing ever again!
