Mexi-Style Salad Bowl

One of the interesting things in the new WW 3-month journal is that it has a recipe for every week. I tried out the week 1 recipe today and hubby had some too. I made a couple of substitutes out of necessity - like digging out baby corn from the frozen stir-fry to replace corn kernals and we didn't have red-wine vinegar so we used balsamic vinegar. Also, we skipped the cilantro or basil to taste - I didn't have any fresh and knew it would be good as-is. What would I do differently next time? Less jalapeno pepper - there was half a pepper in each salad and we are just not used to that intensity. I'll post here the recipe that WE made.

And YES - I would make this again!!! In fact, I made up another container for my lunch tomorrow. Two thumbs up.

Mexi-Style Salad Bowl

2 oz thinly sliced chicken thigh, pan-grilled
2C mixed salad greens
1/2 C defrosted baby corn
1/2 C rinsed canned black beans
1/4 C mixed bell pepper, chopped
1/4 C diced red onion
1/2 minced jalapeno pepper
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp olive oil

Arrange chicken on top of greens and add remaining salad ingredients. Drizzle vinegar and oil over salad.

thanks for the comment re: the mirena - i didn't really have much choice in having it removed and feel that until i'm done having kids (if and when), it's not an option i'm considering anytime soon... though i read so many negative comments on that site the other day, i DO know that not everyone has issues with it... if i didn't have the blood-clotting issue, i'm not sure i would still chose an IUD but who knows... :)
