This time of year strawberries are in season, so what better way to enjoy them than in a salad? Here’s a favorite recipe we enjoy all summer long.
red leaf lettuce torn and cleaned
cleaned and sliced strawberries
crumbled feta or goat cheese
walnut pieces or halves:
Sauteed in olive oil till they begin to brown. Shake on a tablespoon or so of brown sugar and stir till melted. Add a splash (teaspoon/tablespoon) of balsamic vinegar. Have a lid handy to control the splatters. Let cool a little and serve on the salad. Make enough to put some in the fridge for next time. 🙂
sweet and sharp dressing:
3 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, 5 tbsp red wine vinegar or cider vinegar, 1/2 cup canola oil, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/8 tsp ground pepper. Mix well and shake before serving over salad.
With your salad you could serve Apple-Chicken curry over rice. This is a great recipe to use if you want to get rid of left over chicken and kids actually like it! 🙂
Saute 1 medium onion in a large skillet till softened. Add 1 apple peeled and cubed. Heat apple through for five minutes. Add 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 1/2 cup cooked and chopped up chicken, and 1 tsp curry powder or more to taste. Stir and heat through. Add a little water if too thick. Serve over hot rice. Serves ~ 4.
