This meal is quick and easy. I got this recipe from Forks over Knives Summer 2020. I think the dressing needed some garlic, I might add that next time. Also top with sesame seeds for some crunch, one tbsp is 30 calories.
“Cocktail – London Mule – Use a heavy botanical gin as opposed to a London Dry gin for an herbal explosion!
Ingredients: 2 oz Gin, 4-6 oz Ginger Beer, 2 dashes orange bitters, lime wedge
Method: Add gin and ginger beer over ice to a copper mug. Stir. Add bitters. Stir. Squeeze and drop lime wedge. Serve in a copper mug.
Wine – Chenin Blanc – This crisp dry white will enhance the freshness of the dish. Subtle citrus and high acidity will enhance the fresh vegetable flavors. I’m seeing this combo in a picnic basket! Serve chilled in a white wine glass.”
