Spicy summer salad

I just put together a nice summery salad for dinner, and thought I’d toss it on here as a way to let you all know I’m still alive.

Two cans of Costco chicken breast meat
One can of coconut milk (not sweetened or low fat or anything fancy)
Big glop of mayo (maybe 1/2 cup?)
Big squirt of Srirachi sauce (about a tablespoon?)
Squeezins from half a lime
A couple of green onions, finely chopped

Make up plates full of fresh greens (we used greenleaf and Romaine lettuces, and some baby spinach). Chop up a couple of tomatoes and/or avocados. Pour the chicken mixture over the greens (it’ll be a little soupy, but it doubles as a dressing… voila!). Makes four dinner servings.

If I’d had some fresh ginger, I might have grated up a couple teaspoons and squeezed in the juice (I think the actual gratings themselves might have been too strong). Some toasted almonds might have been nice, too, or chopped green apple or celery for crunch. I was too lazy for those… we were very hungry.

No photo, sorry. It was devoured in seconds.

    hi, what is srirachi sauce?

    otherwise it sounds good. I agree the grated ginger might be a bit much. I have a few tomatoes set on and a few peppers. We are picking peas and lettuce; almost time to dig for a few new potatoes, and the cherries are almost ripe but the magpies and robins usually get most of them. Our very late frost got almost all of the pluns, apples, pears, apricots and grapes
