This is a diet version of my recipe #201988, but you won't notice any flavor missing. Hubby, who has always insisted on adding butter to his mashed potatoes, doesn't feel the need to do so with these :)
I made this last night for guests and everyone loved it. I didn't include the marinating time, but it's best to let the chicken marinate all day in the buttermilk. I buy the walnuts already finely diced, but if you are going to chop them yourself, they need to be very fine but not ground. Inspired by PaulaG's recipe #137096.
Almost 30 years ago, one of my cousins served this for her bridal shower with turkey salad in the middle of the beautiful jello ring. It was so lovely I've never forgotten it. This Taste of Home recipe looks like the one I remember.
This is a great weeknight meal, but it also works well as a make-ahead dish for a crowd. I've included directions for both ways below. Inspired by recipe #24175 by chef #29196. I don't have a wok, so I just use a heavy skillet.
I was on my own for dinner last night, so I decided to take advantage of the situation and cook something that hubby won't eat, cause of those darn cooked tomatoes! I'm on a healthy eating nutrition program right now, and I was really pleased with how filling and delicious this meal was while still fitting into my diet.
I'm always looking for ways to use up leftovers. I came up with this one last night, and it was delicious served over wild rice. I would rather have used a can of tomatoes, but hubby won't eat a cooked tomato that he can actually see...oh well!
I love to order salad with red onion when we eat out, but the red onions I buy at the store are never as sweet and mild. That prompted me to come up with this recipe where the onion marinates in the dressing to calm it down a bit. :lol:
I like to serve this salad for picnics and buffet parties with Italian dressing on the side. You can make it up a day or two ahead to save time on the big day. See my note below before you buy the deli meats and cheese.
These are not the traditional Cream of Wheat cookies with raisins. Instead, these are Greek cookies, which I understand were traditionally called Fenekia. They are similar to Russian Teacakes. Recipe from villagegarden.com, posted upon request, I haven't tried it yet.
