WHAT’S FOR DINNER: General Nat’s Chicken Finger Salad
I made this in 5 min. Channeling a craving for General Tso’s Chicken, I made my own warm salad with mesclun mix + winter greens from my garden and leftover tenders. The magic is in the dressing. Yes, I am the owner AND a customer! I adore using our natural sauces as DRESSINGS for slaw and salad! So easy and tasty, they are making me a lazy (but healthy) home cook. Believe you me, after leading a cooking class or food tour, I’m too tired to even lift a pair of chopsticks!
Do a vegetarian version with grilled tempeh or seitan. Do a hot version with wilted spinach or chard underneath (drizzle a touch of soy sauce or lemon juice) instead of salad greens.
More easy variations:
- General Nat’s Country Fried Steak Salad with Soy Ginger Vidalia dressing
- Teriyaki Fried Oyster
- Sweet Chili Peach Fried Fish Salad
See, you can have your chicken fingers and eat it too. Yummy, fast, and light!
1.5 cups spring mix lettuce
