I just love cooking my fresh shrimp in the hint left from the bacon in this recipe. Makes for a lovely lunch or light dinner! From Cooking Light with one minor change....my non-stick skillet states not to use cooking spray, so I've eliminated that and left a bit of oil to cook with. If you have another type of skillet, feel free to wipe the skillet and spray with oil before cooking the shrimp.....personally I prefer to leave a bit of that bacon flavor!
This comes from the Pioneer Woman on the foodnetwork. It's her Aunts recipe for salad dressing. She says Aunt Trish always used salad oil but you can use canola oil. And you can also use the Parmesan cheese that comes in a can if you wish.
We recently stayed in a villa in Bali. The cook made this dressing a couple of times to go over a salad of mixed greens tomatoes and cucumber. She included mint in the salad-not the dressing. Her recipe was actually just equal quantities of lime juice, white (not palm) sugar, and olive oil, garlic and slat and pepper, so it's super easy to make enough for 1 or 12.
The chefs at Gourmet Alley in Gilroy California, famous for their garlic festival every year have shared some of their best recipes, via Country Living magazine(July 1987). I have tweaked this just slightly. Enjoy!
I started with a Greek salad recipe that I found on another site, and I followed some of the review comments that suggested it was even better when made as an Italian salad. It's really refreshing and packed with flavor. It makes a lot, so it's a good salad to take to potluck gatherings.
A colorful and attractive salad with just the right combination of flavors--we especially love the tanginess from the cider vinegar. Fantastic! I sometimes replace the cashews with roasted sunflower seeds, and the mandarin oranges with raisins--it's great either way! Best made a day ahead of serving.
Simple and sweet, only three ingredients. To be clear, this is NOT an Italian-style dressing. This is a mild, sweet, natural-tasting dressing with NO kick (that's how I like it). Still tastes good if you replace the sugar with Truvia, though not so good with low-fat mayonnaise.
This is from Trisha Yearwood's 1st cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen that she wrote with her mom and sister. This is my husband's favorite broccoli salad. Trisha says "This is great served with barbecued pork ribs or prepared to take to a covered dish supper, because it's sturdy enough to stand at room temperature for a while without wilting. It also adds great color to a picnic spread." I've entered it as written, but we like to use red onion and golden raisins. Preparation time includes chilling time.
Easy and delicious dressing. Salad-haters tell me that they will eat a whole bucket of salad as long as it has this dressing on it.
I have also brushed this dressing onto homemade pizza dough (in lieu of tomato sauce) when I make pizza at home.
Note: If you do not have any red wine vinegar you can substitute a tablespoon of red wine (any kind will do) with a splash of regular vinegar. (Not really a new idea; just an easy substitution!)
You will want to shake up the dressing for this popular oriental salad the day before and refrigerate it until you are ready to toss the mixture. Flaked tuna or crab meat are good alternatives for the chicken in this recipe. Another recipe found in TOH.
