Herb and greens salad with chicken

If this looks a lot like Saturday’s dinner it is because I had leftover shredded chicken and chow mein noodles. But it is not totally the same. The base of this salad is spinach, arugula, Romaine, mint, and basil. I dressed it with a drizzle of olive oil and a combination of soy sauce, half of a lime’s worth of juice, garlic powder, and ginger powder. I did not bother on combining the oil and soy parts because they do not emulsify. I put the oil on first and then the soy mixture and tossed the greens around to get it mixed together. I am really liking this new way of dressing the salad. I can control the amount of oil I am using much more easily. Then I piled the chicken on top followed by a scattering of chow mein noodles and furikake.

I lost one pound this week eating exactly what you have seen in the pictures. We also had popcorn for before-sies and wine with many (but not all) of these dinners. Losing 1-2 lbs. a week is a sane way of getting myself back to my goal weight.
