A whisk, especially one that is coated with nylon, is great for whisking salad dressing in a ceramic bowl. The coating on the whisk keeps the whisk from scratching the bowl. Today’s daily special on Foodbuzz is a set of nonstick nylon coated utensils.
With my nylon whisk, I have made an orange ginger salad dressing for a grilled chicken and mango salad. Easy to make and delicious. When I’m grilling chicken for a meal, I always grill more than I need so I can have this salad for lunch the next day. Mangoes are plentiful, too. If you have a ripe avocado lying around, chop it and add to the mix.
Orange Ginger Salad Dressing
2/3 cup rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 tablespoon honey
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk all the ingredients together. Taste to season. Refrigerate until ready to dress salad. Makes about 1 cup.
Assembling the Salad
Grilled boneless chicken breast, sliced
1 mango, diced
Ginger Orange dressing
Place desired amount of salad green in a bowl. Add chopped mango and sliced grilled chicken. Toss with a small amount of dressing. A little dressing goes a long way, so don’t overdo.
