Green Eats – Salad on the Fly

When I looked in my fridge and noticed it contained only beer, cheese, and tortillas, I thought “man, that could make some mean nachos”. However, we will save nachos for another day. In the wake of eating 4 cheeseburgers in two days, I decided that salad was the way to go. Trader Joe’s will be your friend for this recipe, as I picked up all of the ingredients there.

What you will need:

  • 1 bag spring mix salad
  • 1 pre-chopped asparagus, mushroom, onion medley
  • 1 box of grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 package organic chicken thighs (6 thighs)
  • 1 package Parmesan, Romano, and Asiago cheese blend
  • 1 bottle red wine and olive oil vinaigrette dressing
  • Your favorite dry rub mix that includes brown sugar
  • Olive oil

Begin by heating up a saucepan with a bit of olive oil in it. Next, take the chicken thighs out of their package and toss them in a bit of olive oil. Then cover the chicken thighs generously in the dry rub mix. Place the thighs in your saucepan and fry until fully cooked, flipping when needed to get the carmelization of the brown sugar. When fully cooked, remove and let the thighs rest on a cutting board.

Next take out the asparagus, mushroom, and onion medley and fry it up in the remaining drippings from the chicken thighs, tossing when necessary. When fully cooked, remove the medley from the pan and place on a serving dish. Chop all of the tomotoes you will be using in half, and dice the chicken thighs. Place the thighs, medley, tomatoes, spring salad, cheese mix, and dressing in a bowl, toss and serve.

Our pairing this week should mesh nicely with the sweet and rich flavors of the chicken, which if you haven’t tasted it yet, you will realize soon enough. AK-47 is not only a world famous weapon, but also a world famous marijuana strain. Don’t be fooled by the sour smell, as the taste of this strain is primarily sweet and earthy, with relaxed and mellow effects. For further delineation, let’s consult a review of our pairing.


“This AK-47 is gorgeously coated in golden trichomes. Nicely dense buds and broad leaved. Grinds out to become very puffy to reveal the density. Smoking out of a normal 1 perk bong with ice. Had a minimal breakfast and have been awake for 2 hours and I am smoking about 0.35g. Toke 1: Very nice earthy taste, slow developing cerebral euphoria with a slight feeling of eye pressure. Toke 2: Hits hard but only reverberates minor coughs. Lungs feel fine. Heightened cerebral high. Toke 3 and 4 back-to-back: delivers a huge cherried hit and a minor cough. Already a sense of the intensely developing cerebral stoned euphoria. Toke 5: Bowl simmers to a left-over small one hit before it’s cached. continuing effects from earlier. Last Half-Hit: Ash pulled through. no hit 😦 Now, the high. Music gives a body sense high. Overwhelming happiness in the music, laughing and smiling from ear to ear. Urge to dance or your body feels uncomfortable. I feel each thing that touches my body including hair falling on forehead in different places. I’m going to get more food now definitely want to sit down and relax and smile. Making food now, but I won’t waste your time with my jibber jabber.”

There you have it; I couldn’t have said it better myself. Literally, I have never tried this strain so I can’t say anything about it. However, when it comes to presenting the facts, you can count on Mumbled Minds to present them, and leave you with the decision. Until next week, enjoy the lovely spring weather.
