Savvy Lazy Salad Dinners:D

I love salads and can never have enough of them. They are juicy, crunchy, cold and can have an assorted of flavours in them.

Plus they are easy to make after work:D

Grilled Masala Chicken Salad:
• Masala spice
• 2 chicken whole legs
• Green salad of your choice (no hard and fast rule)
• Lemon

Marinate chicken for 20 minutes or pre marinate. I normally pre marinate chciken and keep them in the freezer for my weekday quickie home dinners.

Grill or bake (your choice) for15-20 minutes at 180C. You know its done when you poke it and the juices come out clear.

Serve over a bed of salad. Squeeze lemon over chicken and salad before serving. This taste good with yoghurt on the side too.
Grilled Teriyaki Tofu Tuna Salad
• Tofu (use the ones with the harder skin)
• 1 can tuna
• 4 baby corn
• 12 cherry tomatoes
• 2 tablespoon Sunflower seed or pine nuts
• Lettuce (Any lettuce will do. I normally use different ones for a variety of flavour)
• Black pepper to taste
• 1 tablespoon Marmite
• A pinch of sugar (optional)

Slice tofu into 6 pcs. Mix Marmite with 1 tablespoon of water. Add in a pinch of sugar if you like it a little sweet like teriyaki sauces. Rub Marmite over cherry tomatoes, baby corn and tofu.

Grill in oven at 160C for 10 - 15 minutes or pan fry if you like.

Julienne the lettuce.

Drain tuna of oil or water. Mix with black pepper. You may mix the sunflower seeds or pinenuts here or mix them with the julienned lettuce.

Spread lettuce in plate. Place tuna over the greens. I normally place the tuna in a ring. Then place the tofu, cherry tomatoes and baby corn inside the circle.
Crispy Crunchy Salad
This is fully vegetarian and for my super lazy days.
• Different lettuce
• Cherry tomatoes
• Watermelon and grapes
• 2 table spoon sunflower seed or any seed
• Cashew nuts
• Mango yoghurt (any flavour you like)

Julienne the lettuce if you like. Mix 1 tablespoon of the seeds with the lettuce. Spread them at the base of the place.

Then put the cherry tomatoes, watermelon, grapes and cashew nuts. Put the yoghurt on the side for dip or in the middle and sprinkle the rest of the seeds over the salad. This is a very refreshing and fulfilling vegetarian salad. The nuts and seeds add more kick to it. Plus it adds flavour.

PS: Green apples are very versatile for any of the above dishes.
