chicken salad w pickled gnger, vegepod spinach, vegepod rocket
More salads made to use up salad ingredients. Base is the same then I add different dressings, or chicken and sauces.
I didn’t have time to do much for pot luck lunch so put this together with help from recipe on pinterest but changed the dressing to a bought Italian dressing. It was also good for using up spaghetti.
Ingredients makes 1 bowl
1/4packet wholemeal spaghetti cooked
6 cherry tomatoes quartered (*vegepod grown)
2cups mixed leaves
2Tb sliced black olives
1 carrot diced or grated
1/4 lebanese cucumber sliced and halved
1/4 red onion thinly sliced
1/2 red capsicum sliced into strips then halved
2Tb Italian dressing
Cook spaghetti with water covering spaghetti for 8 minutes in microwave bowl (*strands separate when cooked) then drain. Allow to cool then add to salad
Chop ingredients as stated then mix well with spaghetti and dressing. Cover and chill overnight or until needed.
Serve hot or cold.
It can also be served without spaghetti
