For salad:

1 package mixed salad greens

1 package (6 ounces) fully cooked chicken breast strips

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup dried mandarin oranges

1/2 cup Berry Munch salad topping (see recipe below)

Balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing

For salad topping:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon grated orange rind

11/2 cups pecans

10 Thank U Berry Munch cookies, broken into 1/2-inch pieces

Place salad greens in a serving bowl, scatter toppings on salad and serve with salad dressing.

To make salad topping: In a four-cup bowl, stir together honey, oil and orange rind. Add pecans and stir to coat. Add cookie pieces and stir to coat. Spread mixture evenly in greased jelly roll pan or on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Cool.

Serving suggestions:

Serve with Ciabatta bread.

Salad topping is tasty on any salad, and is also a great addition to any trail mix.


Lemon cups:

1 box Lemon Chalet Cremes Girl Scout cookies

8 large lemons

Lemon sorbet:

1/3 cup lemon zest (4 additional lemons)

11/2 cups sugar

11/2 cups water

Cut off the top 1/3 of each lemon (not the stem end).

Hollow out each lemon by using a grapefruit knife (being careful not to puncture the lemon). Remove juice and flesh and put it in your juicer or blender.

Make a slight shallow cut on the bottom of each lemon shell (being careful not to cut through to the inside of the lemon). This makes them sit straight and not fall over when placed on a plate.

Freeze the shells at least one hour. The frozen shell prevents the sorbet from melting too quickly when you serve it.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water until sugar dissolves. Add lemon zest. Stir until mixture comes to a boil, and then boil two minutes. Add lemon juice, and stir well.

Remove from heat, cool and strain. Pour cooled mixture into a shallow container, cover and place mixture in the freezer.

When mixture is semi-solid, place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Cover and refreeze until serving time.

When ready to serve, layer each frozen lemon shell with cookie crumbles, then sorbet and repeat. Garnish with one Lemon Chalet Cremes cookie.

Serving suggestions:

Perfect for a dinner party dessert.

Can be prepared three days in advance.
