I am always on the lookout for new salad dressings and salad ideas, and recently found a recipe for a delicious sounding salad dressing, so I made paired it with some other ingredients to make Spring Greens with Citrus Vinaigrette!

I Love To Grow Lettuces And Other Spring Greens!

I love to grow vegetables and a few fruits in raised beds and containers in our backyard. Last year was a bumper crop for my Garden Of Eatin’ (as I like to call it!). Our little beds produced tasty, leafy greens, including red leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, rainbow chard, mustard greens, spinach, oakleaf lettuce, and kale.

By the time our lettuce beds are fully mature, my husband and I are eating salads with just about every meal, and I am giving away salad greens to our sons, neighbors and friends by the bagful (I feel so blessed to have “more than enough”, and like to share).

Our backyard raised beds full of lettuces and spring greens.

I found a recipe for a salad dressing in one of my old “Taste of Home” magazines for an orange juice vinaigrette, and it piqued my interest. This interest led to me playing around with the recipe a bit. Eventually I came up with this delicious spring greens salad and dressing.

Use Any Variety Spring Greens!

Basically you can use any types of spring lettuces available (romaine, iceberg, red leaf, bibb, etc.) and make a salad with them.

Spring greens growing, to use in salad recipe.

For this particular salad, to pair it with a citrus based salad dressing, I added crumbled feta cheese, red onions, dried cranberries, and sliced almonds to the chilled spring greens. This really helped to kick it up a notch!

Then the spring greens were topped with beautiful juicy orange slices, and an amazing tasting citrus vinaigrette was drizzled over the top, to serve!

Make A Citrus Vinaigrette Dressing For The Spring Greens

The dressing is an easy to make “light and fresh” tasting vinaigrette; the orange flavor shines and compliments just about any green salad nicely! Making it is as simple as whisking the ingredients together… easy peasy!

This really is a refreshing and delicious spring greens salad, and we enjoyed it VERY much!  Hope you will give it a try! Have a wonderful day, friends.

DIY Mexican Mole Sauce

Learn how to make a traditional Mexican mole sauce (used to enhance a variety of Mexican food dishes), with a few common kitchen ingredients!Learn how to make a traditional Mexican mole sauce (used to enhance a variety of Mexican food dishes), with a few common kitchen ingredients!
I must admit, I had no clue what Mexican mole sauce was when I saw it listed in the ingredient list for a recipe I tried recently for Shredded Pork Smothered Burritos (amazing!!!). The recipe included a homemade red sauce that included mole (NOT the animal!) as one of the ingredients.

Hmm… I had heard of mole sauce and knew it had cocoa in it. I’d seen it listed as an ingredient in Mexican recipes, but had never made it. My husband LOVES the chicken mole enchiladas at our local Mexican restaurant. This deep dark Mexican mole sauce always looks amazing!

What IS Mexican Mole Sauce?

Here’s how Wikipedia defined it: “Mole: (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈmole]; Spanish, from Nahuatl mōlli, “sauce”) is the generic name for a number of sauces originally used in Mexican cuisine, as well as for dishes based on these sauces. Outside of Mexico, it often refers specifically to mole poblano.”

I looked up WHAT it was, AFTER I made the Mexican mole sauce. I figured since I already had the ingredients, I could make it quicker and cheaper than getting in my car, driving to the grocery store and buying a can of pre-made sauce.

Cooking the homemade mole sauce in a large skillet.

I was right. Since the recipe I was making (for the red enchilada sauce) only called for a small amount of mole, I now have the leftover sauce in my freezer, waiting to be used again. Perfect!

So in case you ever need to know how to make a quick Mexican mole sauce, here ya go. Enjoy! Have a great day.

Marinated Grilled Pork Chops and Portabella Mushrooms

My husband is the “Grill-Master” in our family. He recently grilled these Marinated Grilled Pork Chops and Portabella Mushrooms, and the dish was outstanding! Marinated Grilled Pork Chops and Portabella Mushrooms / The Grateful Girl Cooks!
When the weather is decent (in Oregon that means “not raining heavily”), he loves to grill on our Weber BBQ.  He’ll stand out there (yes, sometimes even in the rain) with the smoke pouring out of that BBQ into his eyes and permeating his clothes…and grill our dinner! While I love to prepare the food, I am so grateful he loves to GRILL the food! Yay!

I found this simple marinade recipe for pork chops online; then decided to use half of the marinade for the pork chops, and the other half to make a reduction sauce to saute baby portabella mushrooms in (to top the grilled pork chops with).

Yum.  If you don’t eat mushrooms, then use the entire marinade for the chops. Fantastic, either way!

The Grill Master, busy at work (Should I tell him the lighter fluid goes on the briquets?)- ha ha.

Hope you give these yummy pork chops a try…it’s a simple and delicious entree! Have a great day.

Marinated grilled pork chops, with portabella mushrooms in a delicious sauce.
Category: Entree
Cuisine: American
Keyword: marinated grilled pork chops
Servings: 4 servings
Calories Per Serving: 544 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
For The Marinade:
  • 1 medium onion , finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 large pork chops , bone in
  • 1 package baby portabella mushrooms , sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
Instructions
  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients (onion, oil, pineapple juice, garlic powder, soy sauce, and brown sugar) in a bowl. Whisk ingredients until fully blended. Pour HALF of the sauce over the pork chops to marinate. To marinade the chops, I use a gallon sized plastic resealable bag (you can also use a covered pan).
  2. Set aside the remaining 1/2 of the sauce (to cook the mushrooms in later).
  3. Marinate the chops in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (overnight is even better), turning several times to make sure the chops are fully coated. Once BBQ is ready to go, grill chops until done, basting occasionally with sauce (from the bag or pan).
  4. While pork chops are cooking, add the reserved marinade (that you set aside earlier) to a skillet. Add the sliced mushrooms and saute on medium low for approximately 5-8 minutes. Sauce should reduce a bit as it cooks. Stir to coat the mushrooms. About a minute or so before the mushrooms are done, add the Tablespoon of butter to the sauce. Stir in and keep the sauce warm.
  5. When pork chops are done, place on serving plates and spoon some of the mushrooms and skillet sauce over the top of each chop. ENJOY!

Joy’s Spinach Salad

The recipe I want to share today is called “Joy’s Spinach Salad”. The salad and the homemade dressing that tops it all of is outstanding and would be a delicious, welcome addition to any dinner table!

How I Got The Recipe For Joy’s Spinach Salad

Years ago (almost 20), we lived in Central California, where my husband was a Music Pastor in a large church. We were privileged to get to know many wonderful and truly kind-hearted people during our five year ministry there, and always enjoyed getting to share a meal with some of these friends.

My husband and I were fortunate to have dinner one evening with a sweet couple from our church…Marv and Joy. We were served a wonderful dinner, which included an absolutely delicious spinach salad.

Well… I * totally * loved that salad, and decided right then and there that I needed the recipe for all time forward! So I asked Joy for her recipe…and she graciously shared it with me.

Simple Ingredients and Homemade Salad Dressing

The ingredients are simple for the salad… and the homemade salad dressing!  Baby spinach leaves, hard boiled egg crumbles, crispy bacon, etc. all pair wonderfully with the delicious homemade salad dressing.

Baby spinach used for Joy's spinach salad.

Hard boiled eggs are cut then crumbled for Joy's spinach salad.

Bacon is cooked until crispy, then crumbled for Joy's spinach salad

The Salad Dressing For The Spinach Salad

Joy’s Spinach Salad is the only traditional spinach salad recipe I have used ever since then.  Joy made her own salad dressing, too (kind of like a French dressing), which is not heated as some spinach salad dressings are. It is delicious!

To this day, I think of them fondly when I prepare this and see her name on that stained 3×5 index card. I accidentally took the picture of the salad before I added the mushrooms and bean sprouts… my bad! (just use your imagination!)

Here’s the homemade Spinach Salad Dressing…ready to go! (I hope you like the bottle label…keepin’ it classy!)

This absolutely delicious spinach salad and salad dressing are very easy to prepare (my favorite kind of recipe!). Give my friend Joy’s recipe a try…I think you will love it!

Keyword: spinach salad
Servings: 4 servings
Calories Per Serving: 193 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
For salad:
  • 2-3 bunches fresh spinach , leaves torn into small pieces (or use equal amount of baby spinach)
  • 1 can water chestnuts , drained and chopped
  • 3-4 green onions , chopped (both green and white parts)
  • 1/2 cup fresh bean sprouts
  • 6-8 slices bacon , cooked crisp, then crumbled
  • 2 hard boiled eggs , chopped
  • 8 white mushrooms , sliced thinly
For the salad dressing:
  • 1 cup oil (I use olive, but vegetable or canola work, as well)
  • 1/4 cup wine vinegar (red or white-both will work)
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 medium brown onion , finely chopped
  • salt (to taste)
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk all the salad dressing ingredients together till fully blended. Cover and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving, and whisk again.
  2. Mix all the salad ingredients together (reserving some bacon, egg, and mushrooms for garnish on top so it looks nice).
  3. When ready to serve, pour the dressing on top (you will not need it all-just put on as much of the dressing as you prefer), and toss to coat. Serve. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

The salad dressing is NOT part of the caloric calculation (recipe makes more than you will need for the salad). The calorie count is approximately 43 calories per Tablespoon of salad dressing.

*The leftover dressing is great on any mixed green salad. Store it in a closed bottle or mason jar in the refrigerator. It will keep for quite a while!

Southern Praline Sauce

Southern Praline Sauce, with toasted buttered pecans in a thick, decadent sweet syrup, is an easy and delicious dessert topping for ice cream or pound cake!Southern Praline Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks! Delicious sauce to use as topping for ice cream or pound cake.

Today’s post is a recipe for a rich, delicious Southern Praline Sauce that is a perfect accompaniment for ice cream (I  know this for a fact, based on personal experience with butter pecan, peach, and vanilla ice cream *cough, cough).

Each Fall, my Mom, who lives in Southern California orders fresh picked pecans from Green Tree Pecan Co. (a farm in Texas), and sends each of us (her three daughters) several bags of pecans.

Talk about a great gift… I use so many pecans in my baking, and especially enjoy using them to make all my Christmas goodies each year!

Pecans used to make Southern Praline Sauce (and other desserts!).

My husband and I were invited to a friends home for dinner and dessert, and I brought the dessert… this amazing tasting thick dessert sauce, to drizzle over homemade ice cream!

Southern praline sauce is served over homemade peach ice cream.

At this point, I might add that this praline sauce is so good, you will be tempted to eat it right out of the jar with a spoon (again…personal experience ☺).

Chopped pecans are lightly toasted in a skillet (with butter added), which ensures a delicious, buttery pecan taste, which in my humble opinion, is ALWAYS a great place to start!

Chopped pecans for sauce lightly toasting in skillet for Southern praline sauce.

The toasted buttery pecans are then enhanced with more butter (yep), evaporated milk, brown sugar, flour and corn syrup and cooked until you are left with a thick, buttery sauce that is so good it will make your eyes roll up in your head! (Okay… not really… but it’s THAT good!).

Thick and buttery, this praline sauce is a perfect topping for ice cream!

This decadent sauce is also can be used as a wonderful little gift when packaged in a jar with a gift tag and a cute ribbon; a homemade gift, made with love, from your kitchen to a friend or colleague. The sauce can be served at room temperature or slightly heated in the microwave.

Southern praline sauce is served over ice cream, with a cookie on the side!

I really hope you will consider making this decadent Southern praline sauce… it is very versatile and can be used on many different desserts… pound cake, pies, topping for cheesecake, etc. The possibilities are practically endless!  Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!
