My sister gave me a copy of Simply Salads: More than 100 Creative Recipes You Can Make in Minutes from Prepackaged Greens (affiliate link) for my birthday. She had bought a copy for our mother, then bought one for herself after Mom tried a few of the recipes. I love getting a cookbook which has few favorites of someone I know. I’ve tried a couple of the recipes and have really enjoyed them.
I made a really good salad with barbecued chicken, buttermilk ranch dressing, and a corn and black bean salsa–but I forgot to take a picture. I’ve gotten out of blogging habits during this hiatus.
This Chicken Florentine Salad is one of my sister’s favorites. I hesitated because it seemed odd to have the orzo in the salad but it was really delicious! And the small bit of leftover salad was great the next day for lunch. It would also be good with leftover grilled chicken.
