Today was a balmy 60 degree day in Philly. A little weird seeing as it’s January and expected to snow two days from now, but rather than worrying about global warming and the climate change crisis, I chose to embrace it today. The kids and I spent all morning outside, even in the rain, enjoying the warm air and intermittent breeze. A nice break from the ice and snow that typically characterizes Philadelphia winters! The only problem was that my easy-breezy morning also meant no food when I got home. Oh where is that homecook that I dream of? Stuck in my dreams apparently. But for the second time today I chose to embrace my situation and pulled out some salad fixin’s (what? I’m southern).
This dressing is so good. So good that sometimes I forget to put a salad with it! Just kidding, I don’t ever forget the salad because I LOVE salads, but the dressing is so good that you could. Actually, you could forget the salad and use this dressing on other things like chicken nuggets, burgers, roasted cabbage, ice cream (okay that last one sounds kinda gross but if you decide to do that then go ahead – you do you!). I choose most often to pair it with my Chicken Avocado Salad but it really would be great on almost any salad concoction!
Creamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
- 1/4c Dijon mustard
- 1/4c + 1T avocado oil
- 3T apple cider vinegar
- 2 T raw honey
- 1.5 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- dash of salt
Mix together until well combined. Store in bottle or jar in fridge for up to two weeks. Shake before serving.
Chicken Avocado Salad
- 3-4c mixed salad greens
- Few sprigs of herb of choice (I prefer parsley or basil)
- 3oz cooked organic chicken breast, cubed
- 1 ripe avocado, sliced or cubed
- Salad dressing
- 2T raw sunflower seeds (omit for AIP)
Toss together, make it pretty if you like. Enjoy!
