When I go grocery shopping I try to get items on sale and lately I have been catching the reduced salads as well! In one shopping trip I bought 4 reduced prepackaged salads and stir fry's knowing I could not eat them before expiring.... what to do?! I froze them! What?! Frozen salads? Yes, but if you try this understand that the salads are to be cooked not expected to be eaten fresh. This is how I made this tasty stir fry from frozen to grilled!
When taking out of the freezer, I don’t let it thaw. I take it out the package put it in a big bowl to rinse off the iciness under water, strain the water out and pick out the undesirable pieces. Then I take 2 large paper towels to pat the excess water out.
Heat your skillet or griddle which is what I used, to medium heat. Add salad immediately then add 2-4 tablespoons of oil, I used olive oil. Also add your seasoning of choice, my go to seasonings are Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Ground Pepper, Onion Powder and Oregano. Stir slowly flipping the veggies over here and there so they are not sticking to the surface. If they are sticking that means there is not enough moisture and add more oil a spoonful or two should do. As the onions start to become clear and the harder vegetables start to show some roasted color the dish is almost done. Now add the sauce, I added salsa instead of the package sauce, let that heat for another minute and then the meal is ready to be plated!
In all this took less than a half hour from frozen to grilled to plate! Catch more food content on my YouTube channel C.LynnsArt of Cooking, Watch and subscribe, follow me on Instagram @clynnsart for quick simple eater moments, Happy Eating!
