Sunday Salad Dinner

Monday makes us feel like this…

Especially after a full week of vacation at the beach…

At least that’s what Lucy dog and I think!

And in case you missed our beach vacation dinner recaps, here ya go 😀

Lucy definitely wanted to know where her share of the table scraps were while we were away 😉

While also modeling her new hat…!

Is this not the cutest thing ever?  Because I seriously think it just might be, but I’m kinda partial 😛

Onto our Sunday dinner!

On our way home we made a pit stop by the same farmer’s market we visited on the way down to the beach, there was just no way I was going home without more of their goodies!

I ended up having all the necessary items to pull together a fresh Sunday salad dinner too – no grocery store yet for this gal 😉

Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

The base:

  • farmer’s market lettuce
  • farmer’s market tomato
  • onion
  • lemon basil
  • S&P

The all-star:  Morris Market 5 Roasted Pepper Salsa

Talk about a zing!

I marinated some sliced chicken in a combo of this, a basic Asian toasted sesame dressing and some S&P then cooked it stove top until done.

I also boiled some angel hair pasta, cooled & mixed with more of the sesame dressing plus some black pepper.

Served up:

A layer of salad, some sesame noodles followed by chicken and topped with a drizzle of sesame dressing and voila!


Fast, easy, healthy & delicious.  Not much more I could ask for?

Oh wait, maybe just one thing… 😉

Morris Farm Market blueberry shortcake topped with vanilla ice cream plus some fresh peaches/strawberries that I let sit in some sugar for a few hours.

No words.

Have a happy Monday all!
