Garden to Table : Grilled Chicken Brussels Sprouts Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing perfect for the summer! Delicious and really light yet filling!
So the kitchen garden is flourishing knock on wood and I can’t even begin to explain the joy in plucking a vegetable and cooking with it. Most vegetable dishes taste so much better when cooked with the vegetables from the garden but it is a different high all together to pluck vegetables that can be eaten raw. The freshness in salads is mind blowing. Just like this delicious grilled chicken brussels sprouts salad!
I have a patch of lettuce growing in the garden and the freshness and crunch from in the salad is unbelievable. The joy of plucking that lettuce and using it in your salad is incomparable. If you see too much of excitement here, please excuse, my garden usually evokes that in me 😉 Here look at the beauty growing in my garden 🙂
Last week, I plucked some of these and then looked at my fridge to see what salad could I whip up. My salad making is usually that a little unplanned and putting together by what is available in the pantry. Making a simple quick dressing and one is ready for a filling, healthy and tasty meal. One day, I will do a salad 101 post, but till such time here are the salad recipes for you 🙂
Here is one with chicken, brussels sprouts and a fresh asian style orange and ginger dressing!
Salads are not really only tomato, onion and cucumber! There is so much you can do with some basic ingredients. One of the best thing about salads is that you can mix and match as much as you want! Add an egg, or grill some tomatoes, tear some lettuce or sprinkling some cheese, and you have amazing salad options 🙂 Okay, I am going a bit overboard here, so here is the recipe to a simple salad which rocks in summer 🙂
