Polynesian Salad – #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone, Today I have for you a salad that I had at the Grand Lux Cafe in Las Vegas.  I just fell in love with this salad and I had to re-create it at home!  The only problem was I never got to taste the dressing at the restaurant because the waitress brought me balsamic and this is supposed to come with a pineapple apricot dressing.  But I am pretty happy with my dressing that I made for the salad.

The salad is light with a wonderful tropical flair!  It’s filled with mango, jicama, cucumber, red onions, snap peas, sweet bell pepper, chicken and served on a bed of mixed greens and cabbage.  Look at the pretty colors!

The dressing is light, sweet and a little savory.  I made it using fresh pineapple, freshly squeezed orange juice, garlic, dijon mustard and rice vinegar.  I placed all of the ingredients in a blender and out came this wonderful little dressing that doesn’t contain oil.  After my trip I need to cut back on the fat wherever I can!  Even though olive oil is a healthy oil!!

I love that this week with Sunday Supper that we had to make skinny dishes!  You know this topic is right up my alley!!!  I really debated on what to make, and all I could think about was this salad.  I think this time of year we could use a light, tropical dish!!  I am so ready for spring!
