My darling sister sent me this recipe.
The main reason I blog any recipe is so months from now when I am howngrie, I can come here for ideas. I was going to blog how I cooked it with pictures, but mine was a dumpster fire.
I used so many skillets, I have no idea how to slice onions, and it took over an hour.
Hers seemed so elementary, I just knew I was going to whip this up in no time.
So, for my future recipe hunts, I will post her version, and trust me, it's much better than what I made tonight.
We see who the real cook in the family is.
So maybe sometimes I don't read the directions right.
This was still tasty, even though I butchered it from the original recipe.
I have been wanting to try spiralizing cucumbers. It didn't disappoint, but I wish they had been thicker.
I saw this recipe on Facebook as "This 5-Incredient Salad Will Have You Dancing Around the Campfire!"
So anyway I made it, BUT, there was not a tomato to be found within 20 miles of us, so if you make it, dice up a tomato and chunk it in there.
What I used:
1 cucumber, spiralized
5 strips of bacon
Garlic powder, s&p
3 tbl of Hellman's mayo
Ya'll know that I have issues with my food being wet. I knew the cucumbers may have a bit of drippage....but not like this.
If you make this, don't be like me. Dice the cucumber into bite size pieces, and dry them with a paper towel before assembling.
I spiralized the cucumber....
I sprinkled a little salt and pepper on it.
I cooked bacon, then tossed it about in the cucumber.
I put 3 tablespoons of mayo in a bowl, shook garlic powder into it vigorously, with a little more salt and pepper, and then tossed it all together.
If I wouldn't have tried to get all fancy pants with the cucumber, patted it dry, went to the grocery store and got a tomato, coated it and the cucumber with more salt, this would have been glorious.
I got a soppy mixture of mayonnaise water.
I just heard my mother gagging from miles away....
It was still very good!!!!!!
What I used:
Chicken tenderloins. Because that's what I had in the freezer.
1 sliced avocado
5 slices of crumbled bacon
1 boiled egg
1/2 tbl chili powder
1/2 tbl of garlic powder (let us get real, I probably used 5 times this amount)
A shake of dried oregano
Sea salt and pepper
My perfectly fine store bought Caesar dressing. (The original recipe had a make-your-own tutorial)
Also, after I cooked the bacon, Scott just kind of shoved me out of the way.
Shin splints are a mother, and kind of ruining my life.
What I (we) did:
Boil an egg. Personally, this salad doesn't HAVE to have it, but I was hangry and wanted as much extra food as possible.
Take this much chicken and season it with chili powder, garlic powder, salt, oregano, and I added a shake of Lawry's.
Fried the bacon....
When the indoor grill was hot, Scott shoved me out of the way and said to go sit down.
It couldn't possibly have been because I was whining.
The seasoning mixture on this chicken.....amazeballs.
Like for real, I am going to make this solo for a meal and just add a side.
Then I just assembled.
I tossed the lettuce and the cooked/drained/crumbled bacon
Added the sliced avocado, credit to Scott:
I added a tiny bit of dressing to coat the lettuce, and then I added the chicken, about a tablespoon of more Caesar dressing, the egg, sprinkled with pepper, shaved Parmesan, pecans, sunflower seeds, and cashews, for crunch.
The deeper you dig down, the better this thing got.
Scott made himself a salad, but I don't even know, dude.
Just eat it. It's what Jesus would want.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
