Making everything for the first time
It’s not that I haven’t been eating since May. I just haven’t been posting since May. I will offer no excuse aside from pure laziness. (Which means I would be posting stuff as often as I can this week.)
Anyway, since I’m here, I thought I could start with something healthy.
I really like the chicken salad with honey mustard dressing I used to eat in Starbucks when I was in college. Sadly, I can’t find it in Starbucks where I live right now. So I just decided to make my own.
It’s simple enough. I cut and tossed a few vegetables, cooked chicken breast strips in a tiny bit of olive oil, blended the dressing and it was done.
And here’s the recipe. 😀
1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped coarsely
3 medium carrots, peeled, grated
1/2 cup red cabbage, sliced in thin strips
2 medium tomatoes, chopped (if you have cherry tomatoes, use those instead)
2 skinless chicken breast fillets, sliced diagonally into strips
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp salt
