Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat a pot of salted water to boiling, add the pasta and cook until tender, drain well.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, mix together the Dressing ingredients in a good sized mixing bowl.
  3. After the pasta is well drained and cooled a bit, add it to the dressing along with the rest of the Salad ingredients except the cheese. Toss well to coat everything.
  4. Now add the cheese and fold that, then cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  5. Serve as a side, or in my opinion, as a main dish as that is what I will probably do.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price pepperoni at this time, I used a 150 gram pack of smoked ham for 90 Baht. For the Feta, that is 150 Baht for 275 grams, use half the package (75 Baht), cut the block in half and crumble that for right about a cup. Based on the Feta and smoked ham, for 4 servings, this is about $1.22 per serving.

Variants: 1. In place of pepperoni, use thin sliced smoked ham. 2. Use what you have, like a whole bell pepper instead of cup, or a package of pepperoni or smoked ham, like a cup or so, etc.

First thing, think fresh, not canned. This is just fruit, not 'heavy syrup' or anything like that from a can. Original recipe stated pineapple from a can, so easy and quick to prep a fresh pineapple. Maraschino or glaced cherries will increase the sugar however.

Ingredients
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, add the chicken, skin on and bone in is perfect. Cover with 1 to 2 quarts of water, and if you want to make broth for use in other recipes, add 1 quartered onion, 1 roughly chopped carrot, and 1 stalk of roughly chopped celery (these are in addition to the ingredients listed) to the pot. Bring the pot to a boil then reduce to slow boil or high simmer, cook for 20 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Remove the pot from the stove and allow to cool to room temperature, leaving the chicken in the broth, this results in juicer chicken. When the pot has cooled, remove the chicken to a cutting board, strain the broth and discard the vegetables. Jar the broth and place in the fridge until use, max is about 3 days in the fridge or you can choose to freeze it for later use.
  3. Remove any skin and bones and save for your dog. Now chop the chicken meat or just shred with your fingers. Add the meat to a mixing bowl.
  4. Ad the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve on a bed of lettuce for a light lunch or dinner.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 60 Baht for the chicken, on the high side. For 4 servings, this is about 44 cents per serving.
