Spring must be in the air. I’m over most meals and starting to think of summer and warmer weather.
I made Plain chicken wings last night and have a ton left over so decided for lunch to make a Chicken Salad Sandwich.
Enjoy this flavourful creamy dressing over chopped apples, diced onions and chicken.
I love the LooneySpoons recipes by Janet and Greta Podleski and this is where I learned how to make a delicious dressing for chicken salads.
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp salt
Fresh ground pepper to liking
Whisk all ingredient together and set aside.
Dice half an Apple.
Dice up chicken (enough for a sandwich or two!). Add to bowl.
Dice up 1/8 cup of onion. Add to bowl.
Mix in the amount of dressing you prefer for your chicken salad.
If you like it more on the dry side, add a few spoonfuls; more moist add a few more spoonfuls. Toss together well.
I served on a sour dough bread, with Swiss cheese. I can also happily just eat this mix right out of the bowl! It would also be lovely, on a bed of fresh greens. Cranberries or raisins could be a lovely addition too!
I had seen posts on the Canadian Celiac Facebook Support page about these Gluten free Noodle bowls found at Costco. I’d yet to find them. Then to my amazement – I did!
Who doesn’t miss Mr Noodles?! So I’m hoping these will be a nice alternative.
They come in a ready serve bowl with the noodles, flavour oil, soup base and hot chilli powder.
Add hot water to the inside line of the bowl then wait 3 minutes.
The lovely thing about Pho is you can add whatever you want. I added shredded carrots, slices of onions, spiralled cucumber and diced mushrooms.
I didn’t find the soup base overly flavourful. The second time I made up a bowl, I added a 1/2tsp of Epicure Chicken broth powder and a 1/2tsp of Epicure Vegetable broth powder. That seemed to help boost the soup base flavour.
I tend to make these for a lunch on the weekends or dinner during the week as they take time to prepare the ingredients. Since the bowl itself is really just a starting point.
But I’m happy to have this option, and our family has been enjoying them. Have you tried them yet?
