Strawberry Avocado Salad

13 May

strawberry avacado salad

My friend Myra told me about this recipe so I started searching the web and found it at the http://www.allrecipes.com .

I have to admit I did change it up a little because I thought the dressing was too sweet.

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 teaspoons honey

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Mix all together and this is the honey vinaigrette dressing.

4 cups mixed greens including arugula and spinach.

One sliced avocado

8 to 10 sliced strawberries

1/2 cup pecans (optional)

two slices of chopped steak, feta cheese, goat cheese or chicken

Mix the greens, strawberries and avocado together

Drizzle with a couple tablespoons of dressing

Add whatever topping you like.

Do not over dress this salad.

The dressing is delicious but still sweet.

Thank you Myra and allrecipes.com.

Stretch out the dough to fit the pan

Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Place in the hot skillet and cook till both sides are puffed and light brown.

Place on a paper towel.

Season the chicken with the salt, pepper, lemon and garlic.

Place in the same pan with a little more olive oil and cook till the chicken is done.

There should never be any pink in chicken breasts.

Place the cooked chicken on the dough

Mix the greens and onion together

Place the chicken and dough on a plate.

Place the greens next to it

Sprinkle with the raspberries, goat cheese and dressing.

Add the kiwis on the side.

Easy String Beans

6 Oct

String Beans

I can’t even tell you how easy this is so I won’t.

One bag of 12 ounce clean, prewashed green beans

Balsamic glaze

1 1/2 inch of goat cheese or about 1/3 of a cup

Poke holes in the green bean bag and microwave for three minutes

Drain the water off the beans. This is just water that forms from condensation in the bag.

Put them in a bowl

Generously drizzle with the balsamic glaze

Break the goat cheese into small pieces and put over the beans

The beans are still warm and the cheese gets nice and soft.

You don’t even need a pot.

Enjoy
