  • 1/2 Cup of Mayonnaise
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Bread

Directions:

  1. Toast bread.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Spread the chicken salad on the toasted bread.

Thoughts After Cooking:

It was absolutely delicious. You should make it!

Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Thoughts Before Cooking:

So my work sent me to table at a Baby fair, and when I went on break I checked out the WIC table which was giving out free salad with your choice of toppings and dressings.

When they showed me the different salad dressings, I grabbed the one with basil in it as we all know how much I love basil.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Mayonnaise or Plain Greek Yogurt (I don’t like mayonnaise)
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Green Onions (About 7 stalks)
  • 1 Cup of Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1/4 Cup of Lemon Juice
  • 2 Teaspoons of Chopped Garlic
  • 2 Teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon of Black Ground Pepper
  • 1 Cup of Sour Cream

Directions:

  1. Blend all the ingredients, except the sour cream, in a blender until smooth.
  2. Then add the sour cream.
  3. Refrigerate

Thoughts After Cooking:

I loved it! I thought it was so delicious that I couldn’t stop eating the salad.

I forgot to take a picture, but it comes out a pretty green color and is just great on whatever salad or sandwich you put it on.

Chicken Cashew Wrap

Gung Hay Fat Choy or Happy Chinese New Year!

Today marks the new year, the year of the Rooster. Roosters are trustworthy, with a strong sense of timekeeping and responsibility at work. Some famous Roosters are Donny Osmond, Dolph Lundgren, and Jennifer Lopez. Roosters are best with Oxen and Snakes; but should avoid Rats, Rabbits, Horses, and Pigs.

In honor of this being the year of the Rooster, I have decided what better way than to have a chicken recipe.
