Hi everyone, this is Kathy Lu, Lindsey’s editor and fellow foodie.
I’m here to attest to how I love Goya’s Mojo marinade and produce from the farmers market.
Last night, after the storms blew through (hope everyone’s OK! But if you happen to have any funnel cloud pictures, send them on to roanoke.com!), we made a huge salad.
After marinating a few chicken breasts in the Mojo (you can find this at Kroger, in the Mexican food section), we put them on the grill.
The beautiful Bibb lettuce came from Roanoke’s farmers market on Saturday. It was $1.50, I believe, and really worth it.
When it came time to put everything together, we just threw the cut-up chicken pieces on the lettuce, added olives and feta cheese, and cheated a little by using Roasted Garlic salad dressing by Drew’s (also very good).
The chicken was moist and the Mojo made it very flavorful, so you hardly needed much dressing. And I think one of the best parts about the Mojo is that it’s mostly wholesome ingredients, very little processed stuff. We’ve used it before on pork, too, and it works well.
So for dinner last night, I basically had a “big salad,” like the kind Elaine really wanted on “Seinfeld” but couldn’t find!
Oh, and don’t forget to join in on the burger discussion if you haven’t already. Lindsey’s column in the paper today talked about how Texas Tavern made it into this “Hamburger America” book. I’ve been impressed with how many people love Burgers in the Square, so it’s on my list to try out (I know, I’ve never been there!).
