Summer chicken salad with pomegranate dressing for the Old Man.


For me, because I needed to make it for the Pick n Pay ‘Eat Pray Love’ competition, Indonesian Mie Goreng.


 This is the original recipe from Pick n Pay:

 Main Ingredients

1 dash vegetable oil, for frying

1 tsp sesame oil

1 onion, finely sliced

2 tbsp garlic, ginger and chilli paste

1 packet julienne stir-fry vegetable

125 ml spring onions, chopped

4 packets PnP 2-minute noodles, soaked in boiling water

60 ml sweet soy sauce

1 tbsp sambal oelek, (chilli sauce) optional

4 large PnP free range eggs

1 dash Robertsons coriander, for serving

  • Heat a generous glug of both oils in a wok or pan and fry onion until well caramelised and crispy. Remove half the onions and set aside.
  • Add paste to onion and fry for a few seconds more.
  • Toss in vegetables and stir-fry until just tender.
  • Add spring onions, noodles, soy sauce and sambal oelek and stir-fry for a few more minutes.
  • Heat a little oil in another pan or wok and fry eggs.
  • Serve noodles topped with eggs and coriander leaves.

    Everywhere I turned in the last few days, I have been hearing of pomegranates – (latest fad?) must look for the dressing… I admit it sounds nice.

      All the ancient/Bliblical fruits are faddish at the moment; pomegranites, figs, grapes 🙂

    Funny enough, hubby just walked in the door at lunchtime with two in hand…picked from a pomegrante tree growing wild on the side hedge of the campsite where he’s harvesting corn…what a gem! Yvette x

      You’re lucky, the fruit is rather expensive to buy here.

    Pomegranate dressing? Is that your recipe or bottled?

      It’s bottled, bought at the Good Food and Wine show last weekend.
