We are finally have summer weather, yeah!! Today is going to be close to 90 and this is rare for us. Almost nobody has air conditioning (except my mother, who I can escape to if it gets really bad. Mother's rock!!), so it is light, easy meals we are craving. I wanted to make some dinner salads but was not feeling inspired. I decided to ask FB friends for ideas and boy did everyone come through with lots of yummy salad ideas. This salad it bits and pieces of ideas my FB friends shared. Thank you all by the way!!
I knew I had to share this salad when my family came moaning to me how good it was and told me I need to make it again. Actually what they always say is never make this again, which is code for this is insanely good. I did not put amounts because I think how big of a salad you would make and what you like (maybe you would rather have more tangy green apple or more sweet peaches. I use one apple and two peaches by the way). It is all about your palate and what you like xox
Peach Melba Dinner Salad
I have no amounts listed because I think it depends on the size salad you are making and what you like.
chicken breast cubed, grilled or poached
green granny smith apple, cubed
raspberry/lime vinaigrette *
Toss and enjoy.
* Raspberry/ Lime Vinaigrette
1/2 cup raspberries. If using frozen, give them time to defrost
1/3 cup oil, I like a good olive oil
zest of a lime
juice of half a lime
3 TBL honey
1 garlic clove, finely minced
salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a large bowl, mash and mix together. Taste and adjust to you liking. Your are looking for a vinaigrette with a nice balance between sweet and tang from lemon.
