"Why do you not have a restaurant yet?"
This is my husband's remark after this salad. "Because, darling dear, you like having me work from home and put all my foodie attention on you". Kiss.
But I'll take the compliment :)
Whenever I make a new recipe, the question is, "Does it belong on the menu?" Which means it's good enough to eat, and for others to as well.
Dinner date, so my husband and I are twinning with salads.
Mediterranean flavor, with chicken for him, quinoa for me.
1/4 c raspberries, fresh or frozen
1 tbsp orange juice concentrate
1 tbsp lemon juice squeezed from fresh lemon
2 basil leaves
1/4 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp sunflower or avocado oil
blend in your ninja.
3 leaves basil, shredded
diced red pepper
spoonful of cavatappi pasta ( I used shells made from lentils so that it's a builder rather than a carb congestor)
1/4 pine nuts
sprinkle with feta cheese (vegan, delete)
Top with a breast of chicken, or a spoonful of pre-cooked quinoa.
