Valentine's Day

YAY! I finally had someone to cook for on Valentine's Day! While it wasn't all homemade, it was still quite delicious and fun! The menu consisted of swiss cheese fondue (that my mom had sent me), a chicken salad, brownies with vanilla ice cream and raspberries, and pomegranate martinis! Here's the recipe for the chicken salad:

Super-Romantic Chicken Salad


Bunch of red-leaf lettuce
1/2 chopped fugi apple
1/2 chopped avocado
1/4 tsp. chopped red onion
1 c. balsalmic vinegar
1/2 c. olive oil
2 chicken breasts
salt and pepper
lavash crackers
lemon juice
fresh grated parmesean cheese

1) Marinate chicken in vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper for 5 hours.
2) Heat oven to 425 degrees. Cook chicken until it reaches a center temperature of 160 degrees. Keep warm.
3) Combine lettuce, avocado, onion, apple, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
4) Cover plate with lavash crackers, top with salad and then chicken and cheese.

  1. John said it was really good! What in the world are Lavash crackers??

  2. You can usually find them in the "ethnic" section of grocery stores, like near Mediterranean food. They're just like flat bread crackers.
