From Australian Diabetic Living a complete meal. Times are estimated but DO NOT inlude marinading time (2-4 hours). The recipe called for baby beetroot and charge leaves mix but a salad mix of leaves can be used. You could also replace the chicken with a firm white fish.
I think this recipe came from Canadian Living magazine, but am not sure. The whole meal (which is comprised of Recipe #239788, Recipe #239892, Recipe #239789 and Recipe #239791) embodies the Thai tradition of combining all the five tastes: sweet, hot, sour, salty and bitter in one meal.
A salad that serves well as a light meal. Received at a Weight Watchers meeting. 4 WW points per serving. The original recipe suggests using a red pear for color, but adds that you can substitute any ripe pear. Also, if you can't find roasted almonds, roast your own by spreading almonds on a baking sheet and roasting them in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. In summer months, you could easily swap ripe peaches or nectarines for the pears.
I had this salad dressing many times during my stay at Duke Diet Fitness Center in Durham NC. It's low in calories and tasty.
