Sesame Chicken with Orange and Fennel Salad Recipe

Sesame Chicken with Orange and Fennel Salad




The first thing I do when I receive a magazine is to look at the recipe on the cover.  Sometimes I am inspired to try the recipe. As soon as I saw the salad on the cover of Canadian Living I wanted to give it a try. It did not take me long to go get the ingredients for the Sesame Chicken with Orange and Fennel Salad.  I often eat salad for my main meal because they are quick to prepare and so healthy.

When making a new dish, my son can't wait for me to finish taking my pictures to taste the recipe. When you have children you never know how they will react to any food that you are serving them. This salad has fennel and I could not wait to see if I would like it. We usually have cooked fennel in pastas. He loved it!

The creamy dressing of this salad has a sweet, tangy taste. All the flavors work well together. I like the juice that is bursting from the orange with the crunch of the fennel and cabbage. This salad will be on our menu this summer. We liked it so much that I will serve it to guests also.

What are your favorite salads to make during the hot season?

Cheddar Beer Soup with Potato & Bacon Recipe

Cheddar Beer Soup with Potato & Bacon Recipe



The inspiration for this Cheddar Beer Soup with Potato & Bacon is from a Chef at the Superstore. He made a similar version, during a lunch class, and everyone liked it. I tried it home and did tweak it a bit. My parents came to visit in Ottawa and they enjoyed it. If you are going to host and would like to serve this soup, you came make it a day ahead but add the cream at the last minute.
