Well hello there! Its been sooooo long since my last post! My morning sickness has passed and it looks like I will live after all! So back into it then…
Mental Salad, I can’t remember how it got the name but I suspect it was because people thought it was mental to have Wedges in Salad. Don’t knock it ’til you try it! Its amazing!
Something quick and delicious that’s great for the whole family and perfect for these warmer nights, an old favourite!
No quantities for this one, use what you have – leftovers refrigerated will make the best lunch!
You will need:
Baked, Seasoned Potato Wedges – Shop Bought or Homemade (I love the recipe from My Darling Lemon Thyme) or try Kumara Wedges if you’re Paleo or Low Carb
Salad – Think Shredded Carrots, Red Onion, Radish, Cabbage, Lettuce etc Perhaps some sunflower seeds or Dried Fruit
Seasoned Free Range Chicken Breast – Diced & Sauted
I season with Rock Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika, Parsley, Oregano but just season with Flavours you love! The more flavour on the Chicken the better, if you can Chargrill or BBQ it even better!
A few spoonfuls of Cream Cheese, Yoghurt Labne or Cashew Nut Cheese
Balsamic Vinaigrette, Raspberry Vinegar or a Dressing of your Choice
In bowls arrange your Wedges, followed by plenty of your Salad. Top with the Diced Chicken and a few spoonfuls of your chosen Cheese. Finally drizzle generously with Balsamic Vinaigrette.
The heat from your Wedges will melt the Cream Cheese through your Salad as well as absorb up all the dressing that’s made its way to the bottom of your bowl. I love it!
