We just came inside from running in the sprinklers. It is 104 degrees out and we are hot. The kids are now puddles of wet hair and swimming suits in the living room. They asked for a movie and I agreed, sometimes you just need to lay low.
To avoid turning on the oven we are having this salad. It was first introduced to me 12 years ago and over the years we have tweaked it to make it our own. That is the beauty of this salad, it is highly experimental and just begs to be a “have fun with me” recipe. And the best part? It is going to turn out good, no matter what you do!
What you need:
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup frozen concentrated orange juice
AND however much sounds good to you of the following:
-grilled chicken, sliced and cooled, pull out last night leftovers
-lettuce, spinach, mixed greens, etc.
-apples, finely chopped
-chopped almonds, toasted – do it, they taste so much better toasted!
What you do ::
Mix liquids, add rest of ingredients in to large salad bowl, toss together and serve!
Seriously, I could eat this all the time, it is so tasty and refreshing! And my kids l-o-v-e that there is fruit in here!!!
