I’m going to be frank with you, it’s rare for me to really enjoy a salad. A friend of mine often says, “you don’t make friends with salad”, and I tend to agree with that statement. It’s even more rare for me to sing the praises of a salad recipe. Well, this morning my friends, I’m singing a new tune. I recently tried Canadian Living’s Sesame Chicken with Fennel and Orange Salad recipe (which is their May cover recipe) and this salad was delicious.
The recipe was really easy to follow, took no time to whip up, and the ingredients were all things I already had or could find easily at my local grocery store.
I grilled the chicken on the barbecue which gave it a little extra smokey flavour. For the dressing, I substituted grainy Dijon mustard, with hot and sweet Russian mustard which made it extra tangy and sweet.
This salad is a winner in my books. Crunchy, tangy and filling. You won’t feel like you need another meal after you eat this salad. And you can trust that if this salad skeptic is saying you should try this recipe, then it must be good. You can find the full recipe here. You can also see how other CL bloggers made this recipe, here. Enjoy!
