Last night's dinner was not super exciting, but it was very tasty! Since this blog is meant to show what you can do with everything you might get in your CSA basket, I have to discuss salad. You can make a salad into a meal and it is one of the easier meals to prepare.
I seasoned a chicken breast - use whatever you like, I used poultry seasoning, dried thyme and black pepper - and grilled it to make it healthier than baking. While it was grilling I chopped up some tomato and cucumber, and washed all the greens - arugula, mizuna, spinach and green leaf lettuce. All the greens went into a salad bowl and I mixed them up, then added the tomatoes and cucumber, some sliced toasted almonds, feta cheese crumbles, homemade salad dressing (the CSA recipe of the week last week), then added the sliced grilled chicken on top. Though it seemed like "only" a salad, it was delicious! I didn't take a picture, but you know what this would look like. The trick is to try to stay away from salt when seasoning the chicken, take it easy with the dressing, and don't be tempted to add bread or other carb-y starchy foods with it, and this can be a very healthy but satisfying meal. Yum!
