Dinner Salad with Whole Wheat Pasta, Chicken and Balsamic Vinegar Dressing

Years ago I was watching a food show and they gave out a recipe for a spinach salad - balsamic vinegar, honey, water, olive oil, and lemon pepper. The combo for the salad was spinach, red onions, pears, candied nuts and some sort of cheese. Well, the dressing is wonderful but it made me thirsty so I have omitted the seasoning and most of the oil to make the calorie count friendlier to my hips. Now I use the dressing on lots of dishes including this one.

Salad contents:

Cook some whole wheat pasta

Grill some boneless, skinless chicken, or mahi mahi

Stir fry broccoli, sweet peppers, carrots and some onions


1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 T honey, or Splenda, or brown sugar

2 T Water

pinch of salt or 1/4 t lemon pepper

Maybe a little olive oil

Combine these and shake them up, this will store in your fridge for a few days or more and is delicious on lots of salads.
