Homegrown Tomato and Stir Fry Chicken Salad

Homegrown Tomato and Stir Fry Chicken Salad

A few fall-like days that had me making chili and then the temps went through the roof and now I’m on a hot weather food kick, and really getting back into my salads. I was able to make this salad thanks to a friend who gave us a bunch of homegrown tomatoes.
I’ll have to post my stir fry recipe later. It was a real hit this summer.
  • Stir fry chicken
  • Spinach
  • Medium tomato
  • Mini bell peppers
  • Goat cheese
  • Red onion (optional)
  • Dressing (only a small amount needed)



It’s a salad, so cut the ingredients to your preferred size and toss. The stir fry sauce makes up most of the dressing, but I highly recommend adding a little Ranch dressing or at least some olive oil to bring out the nutrients in the vegetables and add a little coating so the sauce can stick better. Red onions are recommended for flavor if you have to use store-bought tomatoes.

Cold Green Beans and Tomatoes: Easy, Yummy, Perfect for Summer!

Cold Green Beans and Tomatoes: Easy, Yummy, Perfect for Summer!

This is a dish I used to make often, but hadn’t made in years. I made it again the other day and I was very pleased. There is no cooking involved, so it’s perfect for hot weather.

Combine in a glass bowl:

1 can French cut green beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes, with juice (I prefer petite diced)
About ½ medium, white onion, diced
Several cloves raw garlic, minced

Cover and refrigerate to bring out the flavors. I let mine sit in the fridge for a few days this time, but you could serve it in just a few hours, or even right away in a pinch.
