Salad of the Week

I haven't been very good at posting pictures of salads lately, or even posting many blog entries, but this week we had a salad worth sharing. I hadn't planned on sharing it, so I don't even have a picture - sorry!

This is from the Biggest Loser Cookbook - Thai Ground Chicken Salad


4 tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 tbsp fresh minced ginger
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
salt to taste
1 tbsp olive oil


shredded romain lettuce
slivered red onion
slivered baby carrots
2 tbsp fresh mint leaves - chopped
2 tbsp fresh cilantro - chopped
2 tbsp roasted cashews - chopped
1 pound of extra lean ground chicken

Make dressing and set aside, I already doubled it for you, as they made it for only 1 serving. Easily I would make more - almost double what I listed above. The dressing was awesome, loved the ginger with the sweet chilli sauce, yummy!

Brown ground chicken, leave it in small chunks if you like or ground it right up into small bits. Pour some dressing on meat once cooked.

On a plate place torn lettuce, mix in cilantro and mint leaves. Add onions, carrots and cashews, drizzle with dressing and top with ground chicken.
