Had been making salads for dinner lately....

Last night we had this sweet and tangy Chinese Chicken Salad
don't have mandarin oranges so I used pineapple chunks instead

Tonight, we had this ... a salad that I've made up... I even made my own dressing =)
started with lemon, Dijon mustard, garlic, vinegar, rice wine....(I was grabbing whatever was in the cabinet =) ) emulsified it with olive oil, salt and pepper... it needed a little sweetness so I added honey ... and this dressing was perfect with my salad=)
maybe I can call it, Vin's Healthy Salad (because this is for him)
