Salad Sunday, Tropical Coleslaw

Summer is such a great time for salads. There seems to be an endless supply of fruits and vegetables to combine to go with food fresh off the grill.

I paired this week's salad with marinated grilled chicken and grilled potatoes.  I'll enclose all three recipes.

Tropical Coleslaw

1/2 head of small green cabbage shredded
1 large mango
1 kiwi
2 stalks celery chopped
1 bunch green onions sliced.
1 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons light olive oil
1 tablespoon honey

Combine all of the vegetables. Add the nuts.  Combine the dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.  Pour the dressing over the salad mixture and toss to mix well.

Lime Grilled Chicken
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon minced ginger
salt and pepper

Place 4 chicken thighs in a plastic bad and add the marinade.  Marinade for at least one hour. Grill over hot coals for 45 minutes.

Grilled Potatoes
Cut 2 yellow potatoes into bite sized pieces.  Place on large square of aluminum olive.  Sprinkle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh oregano.  Wrap tightly in foil. Place over hottest coals for 45 minutes.
