Chicken Salad with Orange Cumin Dressing

Submitted by: SMBRYCE1

Introduction

I made this as an individual lunch for myself when I was really hungry, then realized it was really enough for 2 people. Next time I might add some black beans. Photo coming soon.

Ingredients

    Salad:
    Spinach, fresh, 1 cup
    Arugula, 2.5 leaf
    Romaine Lettuce (salad), 1.5 inner leaf
    Tomatoes, red, ripe, raw, year round average, .5 medium whole (2-3/5" dia), sliced

    Dressing:
    Orange Juice, .25 cup
    Walnut Oil, .5 tbsp
    Balsamic Vinegar, .5 tbsp
    Cumin seed, .25 tsp

Tips

We bake several 1/2'd chicken breasts at the beginning of the week with light salt and pepper so that they're easy to take out of the fridge and throw into a recipe at lunch. It's important to season them at lunch time tho, otherwise they're too bland.


Directions

Dressing:
Juice one orange and use .25 cups of the juice
Mix with half a tabelspoon walnut oil, half a tabelspoon balsamic vinegar, and .25 a teaspoon ground cumin. Wisk or place in a plastic container with air tight lid and shake.

Chop half a medium tomato and .25 cups thinly sliced jicama and toss with 1 cup fresh spinach, 2.5 leaves arugular, 1.5 leaves romaine lettuce, .5 cups bean sprouts, and two ounces of already cooked chicken. Pour salad dressing over it, and chow down!

Serving Size: 1 large salad or 2 side salads.

Number of Servings: 2
