Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)

Salad Olivier, GiryaGirl Style

Description

A high protein take on a classic one dish meal salad for people who hate mayonaisse. Great for a complete make-ahead meal, picnic item, or take to work lunch.

Ingredients

1lbchicken, white meat (Cold, cooked - see recipe notes)
2cpeas and carrots, frozen (Thawed, but not warm)
2cpotatos, red skin (Cooked, cooled and diced)
1⁄3cdill pickles, minced (Use Mediterranian or European style pickles without food coloring)
6 scallions (Cleaned and thinly sliced)
2Tcapers (drained)
3Tdill, fresh (chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried)
1tsalt (or to taste)
1⁄2tpepper (or to taste)
1⁄2cplain greek yogurt (pastured if possible)
1⁄2csour cream (pastured if you can!)

Notes

Normally I will bake the chicken in a shallow pan the night before (as well as cook the potatos), and let them cool.   The frozen peas/carrots can be gently thawed dry in a low heated skillet and gently stirred while you are preparing the other items.

 

Adapted from The Complete International One-Dish-Meal Cookbook by Kay Shaw Nelson

Instructions

Combine cooked chicken, peas and carrots, potatos, scallions, pickles in a large bowl.   Combine the yogurt, sour cream, dill, capers, salt and pepper then add it to the chicken and vegetable mixture.  Blend well, without destroying the individual ingredients.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving so the flavors can develop and meld.   

Traditionally, when served this salad receives a variety of optional garnishes: cold cooked shirmp, hard boiled egg wedges, tomato slices, olives, etc.   Alternately it is also extremely good straight out of a pyrex container in the refrigerator.
