Joe's Chopped Salad $6.27

This salad makes for a happy husband here in the Heron household.  He's actually enjoyed everything on the menu this week... and without a doubt, this will make one more night of good eats!

Joe's Chopped Salad actually distinctly resembles a chopped salad available in a "local-chain" restaurant around here famous for its hot dogs, Italian Beef, and burgers... tonight I present,

Joe's chopped salad
all quantities are "to your liking"...

romaine $1.26
red cabbage (optional)
green onion.20
bleu cheese.79
D'Italini pasta (those little guys that look like pencil erasers).39
Chopped Chicken Breast$1.25
grape tomatoes (or chopped tomatoes)$1.99

crumbled bacon .60
avocado .79

chop the romaine, slice a small amount of red/purple cabbage into it, then some green onion, bleu cheese, pasta, chicken and tomatoes  AND the dressing below ... then top with chunks of avocado and small crumbles of bacon.  serve with bread if you feel the need - but there isn't much carb left need after a good helping of this salad.
1/4 cup lite miracle whip
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp. red wine vinegar
mix well - allow to sit for at least 1/2 hour to flavor through.
