Julienne Chicken Tip for Salads

I was in the grocery store the other day at the deli counter getting some lunch meat for my husband. A man in front of me ordered chicken lunch meat cut about 1/4 inch thick. What in the world I thought? So, I asked him. Whatya gonna do with that? He said he was going to cut it in Julienne strips and place it on a bed of lettuce. Said he loved the grilled chicken salads at the fast food places, but this was a a whole lot cheaper and always fresh and new.

So, when it was my turn I did the same thing. When I got home, starving, I cut it in little square strips like they do at the fast food places, added a few different lettuce varieties I had on hand, some tomato and carrots, etc. and then placed the chicken in the microwave for a 30 seconds or so. I had an easy and GREAT salad for around, oh, I guess $1 to $1.50. Why didn't I think of that before. Great dish for lunch at home or in the office.

This is a great tip, but why stop at chicken? We've been eating what my kids call "meat salad" for years.

Different bottled dressings turn this wonderful nutritious plate into a plethora of different tastes. There's a great Chinese version, using 'any' julienned meat and just a touch of salt, pepper and a product called "WOK OIL" which is a highly seasoned oil that can be found in most grocery stores in the imported section. A few drops go a long way. If you add a few toasted sesame seeds to this it makes a great Asian style treat.
