1st of all, I never want to have salad as a main course. If I’m being honest, I usually don’t even want salad as an appetizer. But that’s largely because of my hatred for iceberg lettuce… still, even with romaine or spinach, it’s unlike me to make salad into a meal. But I went a little crazy buying veggies so I thought I’d try it one night. Peter didn’t seem excited and I wasn’t either. But surprisingly both of us loved it and Peter agreed I need to make this dinner more often. I used:
8 oz fresh romaine lettuce
1 peeled and cubed cucumber
1 cubed red pepper
1 cubed tomato
4 oz cubed mozzarella cheese
3/4 pound of cubed chicken
a couple squirts of Sweet Baby Ray’s Creamy Buffalo Dipping Sauce
I squirted the dipping sauce into a frying pan and cooked the chicken in it. Combined everything else in a bowl and then dumped the chicken and tiny bit of extra sauce right in. I thought about adding some dressing, but honestly, it was totally unnecessary. And this made SO MUCH salad. We had a lot leftover. So feel free to cut back the amounts I used… or just feed more people with it.
I think my next family function I’m going to volunteer to make this and people can eat it as an appetizer. Yum!
