I made a really great dinner tonight, unable to take pics though because *ahem* Someone accidentally dropped my camera yesterday on the last day of school.. I'm not naming names here, but I was due to get a new camera anyway, and I really should have Months ago, but when my last camera was stolen from my bag on the bus in November (and I was SO mad, I had just bought it in March, 2007) I got a little jaded and figured my old (2002 model) camera would be fine for now, no new babies or weddings this summer, so I thought I'd be fine.. and then I started Blogging.. so I kinda Need one now It's gotta wait a few weeks though.. first things first (like Bills and rent, lol)
Anyway, Back to Dinner..
I made this great salad with Grilled chicken that was marinated for a good 24 hours in Stubbs chicken marinade (OMG that stuff is So good! I thank my best friend Patty for turning me onto this stuff) half an avocado, and this totally Kick ass Cumin Lime dressing that I mixed up one day when I was starving and out of the bottled stuff..
Cumin Lime Dressing
Juice from half a lime
1/4 cup Mayo
1-2 Tbs. Canola oil (depending on how you like your dressing)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Squeeze the juice from the lime into a small bowl, add Mayo and oil and mix with a wire whisk until smooth, add cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper and you're ready to go.
I tossed up my salad with some romaine hearts, shredded carrots and a handful of shredded red cabbage, sliced up chicken, cubed avocado and about 2/3's of the dressing and it was So dang good
