How about some Salad!!!

Cooking just for one person is definitely one of the most boring things ever. Firstly I love to cook / bake because I love to feed people so half the fun is lost when I am cooking for myself. The next few recipes that I plan on making are either going to be quick to make or just plain healthy… Atleast that’s what I am thinking right now. So here’s the first one, I made this easy to put together salad with chicken sausage and a very interesting asian style dressing. It would take about 15 mins to put together.

Ingredients:

  1. 3 cups Mixed Greens
  2.  1/2 cup steamed baby carrots
  3. 1/2 cup booked  broccoli
  4. 2 chicken sausages (chopped and cooked)

For the Dressing
  1. 1/2 cup sour cream
  2. 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  3. 1/4 cup mirin
  4. 1 tsp olive oil
  5. 1.5 tbsp sesame oil
  6. 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  7. 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  8. 1.5 tbsp honey
  9. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  10. 1 tsp ginger powder

Directions:

  • Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan. Next add the minced garlic and fry till it is lightly browned.
  • Next add the sesame oil to the garlic in the saucepan and stir till it is mixed.
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients under dressing using a hand mixer and add the garlic – sesame oil mixture to it.
  • Mix the greens and vegetables together.
  • Put the sausage pieces over this.
  • The dressing can be served on the side and added as needed.

Hope you like this. I loved it mainly because all the ingredients are usually in my refrigerator and it is easy to put together. And maybe I will bake something next, how about some rugelach or maybe some croissants.
