I had to work an hour late today. I texted Tony to tell him I was on my way home, and he said “what do you want for dinner?” I told him I had stirfry on the menu, and I walked in the door to this deliciousness!
So Andrea is the hostess of this weeks Blogger Secret Ingredient Recipe Contest – the ingredient this week is Ginger!
When I explained my recipe to Tony and Hannah I think they both threw up in their mouth just a little bit. Don’t worry! I am taking it to work tomorrow to subject my co-workers to this amazing combination!
I don’t know what it is about ginger, but it kind of sticks to the back of my throat a bit. My neighbor brought back ginger beer from his vacation over the summer, and I have that same feeling when I ate my dish. I should say that I don’t think I have EVER done anything with ginger other than to shave some in stirfry!
Here are the ingredients I used:
Here’s how it looks before its “dressed!”
All wrapped up!
Grilled Chicken Wraps with Creamy Citrus Ginger Dressing

- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 packet Splenda
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Place evaporated milk, lemon juice, oil, splenda, ginger and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. (can be stored in a jar in the fridge too!)
- 4 cups mixed salad greens
- 3 cups chopped chicken breast
- 1 cup broccoli slaw
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds

Combine salad greens, chicken, broccoli slaw, dried cranberries and almonds in a small bowl. Add 2/3 cup of the dressing and toss well. Place 3/4 cup mixture on each tortilla and wrap tightly.
Check out Andrea’s site to see what everyone else is cooking up – the deadline to submit your ginger recipe is Sunday night.
I love the new layout of WordPress! I think its a lot more user friendly for someone like me who isn’t that technical!
Cannot believe tomorrow is Friday again already! I have to be at work EARLY so it may be a late breakfast post tomorrow. See you then!
