In Reply to: I've gotten into making huge salads posted by for my dinner lately. Lots of veggies and (SM) on April 29, 2008 at 15:14:40:
might do the trick. Hoisin (kind of Chinese BBQ sauce), soy sauce, sesame oil (little goes a long way), some grated ginger and/or garlic, rice wine vinegar and a perhaps a pinch of cayenne pepper (or hot pepper flakes).
As for other kinds of salads, Rachael Ray has a very creative salad for virtually all of her dinner meals. You might check her out on food network and search "salad Rachael Ray" or "salad 30-minute meals."
Hope something of this helps. : )
: try to put some type of protein in there. Sometimes chicken, beans, boiled egg, etc.
: Our Jack-in-the-Box makes a great-tasting Asian Chicken Salad which is topped by a nice flat piece of chicken, I'm assuming chicken breast. It's about 1/4-inch thick, looks like it has been pan fried. Usually comes in 2 pieces. How can I recreate that chicken? What cut of chicken is it? Is it chicken breast pounded down? That's the closest I can guess but wouldn't know how to go about doing this. Any suggestions appreciated!
: What they do is cook up the chicken when ordered and put a hot piece on a cold salad. They add mandarin oranges, almond slices, shredded carrot, lots of greens, and a few cucumber slices.
: Also, any other ideas for dinner salads? The other one I do is a southwest salad with kidney beans, guacomole, carrots, red or yellow bell pepper, corn, boiled egg, and maybe topped with a few Fritos. Oh, lots of greens, of course.
