This is something I whipped up some time ago when we all felt like a healthy lunch. You all know about my love for mushrooms and how the family loves them too. Both my boy and girl love anything with corn in it and The Lovely Wife just adores anything that has to do with vegetables - especially if the word Salad is in it.
Salads are always great to have on a hot day - which is practically every day in Malaysia. The thing about salads is that you can eat a lot of it and not feel guilty. Aside from that, its really nutritious and wholesome and best of all it doesnt take long to make!
The real beauty about a salad is that you can add anything and everything to it and it tastes just great. To add more body to my salad, I added in some chicken.
This is what I did:
200g chicken breast - sliced
200g brown mushrooms - sliced
1 onion - sliced
1 clove garlic - chopped
1 tsp oregano
1 Head Lettuce Leaves
1 Orange Capsicum - sliced
1 Red Capsicum - sliced
1 Cucumber -sliced
1 tin corn
Sautee the garlic and onion and then add in the oregano. Put in the the mushrooms and chicken and cook till tender. Season with salt and pepper.
On a separate plate, combine the lettuce leaves, cucumber, capsicum and corn. Arrange the chicken on top and toss before serving.
Very tasty and very wholesome. I didnt add any dressing but you could add in a little vinagrette dressing if you like. The mild flavours from the chicken and mushroom provided enough of a dressing for me and you could get the real taste and flavour of the vegetables.
Fresh, crunchy, tasty and perfect for a quick meal!
