Tonight's Dinner - Oriental Chicken Salad
With the weather being so hot these days, tonight I decided to make a yummy salad with grilled chicken. We have been having these a lot lately and depending on our mood we change the ingredients to highlight the flavors of a certain cuisine. Tonight was Asian with Mandarin oranges, toasted almonds, cucumber, dried cranberries, chow mein noodles and lots of grilled chicken. This is always a huge hit with everyone. We also make a delicious Mexican salad and a really good Italian salad. The kids love to help, and Oliver and Elliott are especially interested in learning how to cook. I am teaching them the basics right now and tonight Oliver did a large percentage of preparing this salad. He really loves learning about different flavors and cooking techniques. Who knows he may be the next Emeril.
