Thursday, April 8, 2010 |
Hello! Its recipe time! This week the recipes will be using peanut butter. It is on sale as a part of the caselot sale at Smiths.  

Here is a picture of what I WANT to make

but with swim suit season quickly approaching here a few recipes that I will try instead. =)

Chinese Chicken Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressin
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
4 cups romaine lettuce leaves (or 1 bag European or Asian salad mix)
1 cup carrots, julienned
1 cup broccoli flowerets
2 cups bok choy, julienned
3 cups assorted Chinese vegetables (pea pods, bean sprouts, water chestnuts)
1 cup cooked skinned chicken breast, cut into thin strips
3/4 cup seasoned rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons apple juice concentrate
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced ginger root (or 1/4 teaspoon dried ground ginger)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

Mix spinach, romaine, carrots, broccoli, bok choy and Chinese vegetables. Divide onto 4 plates. Equally distribute chicken onto salads. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, apple juice concentrate, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Mix well. Heat the peanut butter in the microwave until a liquid-like consistency. Whisk the peanut butter into the dressing mixture. Pour the dressing over the salads.
