Soak the chicken breasts in salt water for 45 minutes.

One of my favorite restaurants serves a killer wilted spinach salad. They use only baby spinach leaves drizzled with a warm raspberry vinagrette. Delish! (and lots of calcium for strong bones.<g>)
That's one reason I'm trying to eat more spinach and broccoli - for the calcium! I'm afraid I don't get nearly enough. but dark green veggies have lots of other good stuff in them, too.

CITRUS ASPARAGUS SALAD

Here's a tasty spring salad


INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
3 tablespoons fruity white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup chopped pecans
3/4 pounds fresh asparagus spears
1/2 cup fresh or frozen small green peas (optional)
1-1/2 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 head Boston lettuce, separated into leaves
1 orange, with rind coarsely grated (or shredded, if you have a citrus zester)for garnish, then cut into four wedges


METHOD:

Combine orange juice, wine, salt and pepper; set aside.

Prepare asparagus by breaking off tough woody bottom portion.

Melt one tablespoon of butter in a skillet over MEDIUM heat. Saute pecans until lightly browned, two to three minutes. Remove from the skillet and drain on a paper towel. Blot to remove excess butter.

Place asparagus in large skillet and cover with water. Bring to a boil, cover and steam 2 minutes. Pour off water, and add juice/wine mixture. Cover and steam three to four minutes, or until the asparagus is just tender-crisp. Add peas, if using, and cook one to two minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and heat through.

Arrange lettuce on four plates. Divide the asparagus mixture and sauce among the lettuce-lined plates.

Top with pecans and orange zest. Squeeze juice from orange wedges over each salad before serving.

Yield: 4 Servings

In southern California right now, strawberries are plentiful. Here's a recipe that makes good with a pint of strawberries.

<b>Strawberry Elegance Bundt Cake</b>

1 white cake mix
1 (3 oz.) strawberry Jell-O
1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons flour
4 eggs
1 pint fresh strawberries
1/2 cup sugar

Slice the strawberries and sprinkle with the sugar. Mix all ingredients together and beat for 3 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes. If there are <u>still</u> more berries, make ice cream!

a word of caution with dump cakes. Don't mix up the ingredients. LOL

I did that the first time I made it. It was actually pretty good, but it didn't turn out as it was meant to.
