Recently, I was challenged to create a recipe for the “Skinny Mama-Cooking With Mustard Recipe Contest”, sponsored by Saucy Mama. After creating several recipes, I’m entering my favorite: Smoky Garlic Chicken Salad. In this salad, I used avocado and Saucy Mama’s Smoky Garlic Mustard blended together to create a delicious binder, instead of mayonnaise. This recipe fits within the popular South Beach and Atkins diet plans.
I mentioned a giveaway…Courtesy of Saucy Mama, the giveaway is a gift set of their delicious mustard, featuring: Saucy Mama Tarragon Lemon Mustard, Saucy Mama Dijon, and Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic Mustard.
