Today: Spinach Salad with Grilled Chicken
Tomorrow: Spinach Salad with Grilled Chicken
The Next Day (and the next and the next): Spinach Salad with Grilled Chicken
Chad will not eat a salad made with lettuce of any type but he will eat spinach salad. He was commenting this morning that he wants to lose some weight and I need to do so also and Vince is gone . . officially in Texas for good. Chad and I can eat spinach salad with grilled chicken every day so that’s just what we’re going to do. The grocery shopping was quite simple!
The dressing isn’t low calorie and we’ll sometimes use bacon on our salads but this is healthier than most dinners we have around here.
We’ll slice up the chicken breasts once they’re grilled and add them to some of the dressing and those three breasts will probably last us at least through Thursday or Friday.
For the dressing we love a recipe mom uses. I put the following in a wide mouth pint jar:
1/2 c. oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1/4 c. catsup
3/8 c. sugar (1/4 cup is probably really plenty)
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 of an onion, sliced or cut into chunks
Using the stick blender, blend all ingredients.
When it’s time to eat, I’ll boil a couple of eggs, maybe fry a couple of pieces of bacon, add some sliced water chestnuts, maybe a few strawberries, blueberries or mandarin oranges, spinach, grilled chicken with dressing and we have a meal and no kitchen mess at all!
