Last week I crossed another wedding gift off my list to use within year 1 of marriage (side note - my anniversary is less than 1 month away....definitely not going to get around to using everything in the next month. Sigh.). My sister had raved about this
Lots of fresh fruit/veggies, and it was my first time ever buying mint for a recipe:
It was pretty simple, just cook the chicken....
...mix together with the peaches and other veggies.....
Then use the blender to mix up this mint concoction. Here's where things went awry. I'm not sure if this is how the mint dressing was supposed to look:
But I plowed forward, figuring I did it right....
Pour the dressing over the mixture, and refrigerate for a while:
Mmmm doesn't this look like a healthy, yummy salad?
Well it's not. For as much as my sister raved about it, I REALLY disliked it. I wouldn't say hate, because I was able to force half of it down my throat, but I just didn't think it was good. Maybe I used too much mint? I'm not a minty person, and to me the mint tasted too overpowering. Jay gobbled it down as usual, saying "this is really good! I love it!"....as he always does when I cook, just to encourage me to keep doing it....but later admitted he didn't think it was that good either.
I had to document the use of my blender (because who knows when I'll be whipping that puppy out again), but all in all, I tossed this recipe and won't make it again. Maybe you guys will love it - I know my sister did!
