Oh my friends, don’t you just love this time of year when you can prepare delicious foods that include a little something from the garden?
The last two evenings we have had garden meals.
Sometimes on a hot summer day a cool salad for dinner is just what the Dr. ordered. I had a huge cabbage. I picked it and trimmed it before I thought to take a photo so I just placed it by the next one that will be ready in a couple more weeks.
Gave it a good bath. lol!
Then I plucked one of these beauties. Sweet Walla Walla Onions.
One of my favorites. . .Oriental Chicken Salad.
I think that most everyone is familiar with this recipe, but just in case:
Oriental Chicken Salad:
2 c. cooked chicken, diced 1/4 c. vinegar 1/4 c. salad oil
4 c. or or 1 head of cabbage 2 T. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. chicken flavor Ramon Noodles 1/2 c. slivered Almonds
1-2 bunches gr. onions ( I used my Walla Walla)
Mix chicken and cabbage in bowl. Set aside. Combine onions, vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, and flavor packet from Ramen noodles in bowl Pour this mixture over the chicken and cabbage and mix well. (Cover and refrigerate). Just before serving; add almonds and broken Ramen noodles. Stir until well mixed. I felt like it needed more oil and vinegar. Would do 1/2 c. next time. Or use 1/2 head of cabbage. I used a half, but it was a huge cabbage!
Then last night I was craving a homemade mushroom and Swiss burger. So I plucked a few more of those wonderful onions and look what I made as a side dish. YUM-O!
