You might think this is crazy.

It’s a waffle panini. You’ll like it, I promise.

If you think I’m off the charts with this, I saw a bbq pork slider made with little donuts yesterday on Pinterest. Don’t get me wrong; it looked delicious.

You know that crazy addictive ginger salad dressing at Japanese/Hibachi restaurants that everybody loves? About two years ago I discovered Makato (it’s a brand) at Publix and I’ve been an obsessed since.  I could drink it.

I’ve drenched it over chicken and grilled it, sauteed broccoli in it, used it as a dip for vegetables, etc. I could go on and on.

This panini consists of shredded chicken tender thighs, slaw made with that luscious ginger dressing and fresh cilantro in between two savory waffles.

It’s ridiculous.

I had to dip mine in extra dressing.
