I had to work an hour late today.  I texted Tony to tell him I was on my way home, and he said “what do you want for dinner?”  I told him I had stirfry on the menu, and I walked in the door to this deliciousness!

I was going to use tofu, but steak was good too!

So Andrea is the hostess of this weeks Blogger Secret Ingredient Recipe Contest – the ingredient this week is Ginger!

When I explained my recipe to Tony and Hannah I think they both threw up in their mouth just a little bit.  Don’t worry!  I am taking it to work tomorrow to subject my co-workers to this amazing combination!

I don’t know what it is about ginger, but it kind of sticks to the back of my throat a bit.  My neighbor brought back ginger beer from his vacation over the summer, and I have that same feeling when I ate my dish.  I should say that I don’t think I have EVER done anything with ginger other than to shave some in stirfry!

Here are the ingredients I used:


Here’s how it looks before its “dressed!”

All wrapped up!


Grilled Chicken Wraps with Creamy Citrus Ginger Dressing


  • 2/3 cup fat free evaporated milk
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 packet Splenda
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Place evaporated milk, lemon juice, oil, splenda, ginger and salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Mix well.  (can be stored in a jar in the fridge too!)


  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 3 cups chopped chicken breast
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • low carb tortillas

Combine salad greens, chicken, broccoli slaw, dried cranberries and almonds in a small bowl.  Add 2/3 cup of the  dressing and toss well.  Place 3/4 cup mixture on each tortilla and wrap tightly.

Check out Andrea’s site to see what everyone else is cooking up – the deadline to submit your ginger recipe is Sunday night.


I love the new layout of WordPress!  I think its a lot more user friendly for someone like me who isn’t that technical!

Cannot believe tomorrow is Friday again already!  I have to be at work EARLY so it may be a late breakfast post tomorrow.   See you then!
