I love this recipe! It is from the "Frugal Gourmet Whole Family Cookbook" by Jeff Smith. I've made this simple recipe for many years. People are always impressed but... I never tell them how easy it is to make. Some recipes are best kept secret. But I will share this one...
This isn't any old tuna salad sandwich. Filled with hummus (Middle Eastern chickpea dip), sesame oil, cumin and cilantro, this is a tuna salad like you've probably never had before. Pack it in pita pockets along with a slices of tomato and lettuce. I am not a cilantro fan, so I leave it out.
Spicy, Tart, and Sweet Oven Dried Apples. I like Granny Smiths but use what firm apples you prefer. I made this with candies ginger just pulse in the grinder along with the cardamom. I like the uneven amounts of spices on each slice. This way those that like it can pick the more spiced ones.
Supposely because of the large amount of garlic in this recipe it is bound to keep away the angel of death--thought this sounded interesting and delicious and although I haven't made this yet I will be making this cheese soon. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (May 1981)
Rumor has it that the second Zaar World Tour is starting soon and I'm quickly trying to post recipes in preparation for the next international eat-a-thon (Hee hee). Not sure if you would consider this more Spanish or Mexican. For those not familiar, Manchego cheese is a golden sheep's milk cheese native to Spain which comes in three forms based on aging. For this recipe, the two younger varieties would work best. Be sure to use a cured (not fresh) chorizo. You can make these using full sized tortillas or on tiny ones for a delicious appetizer. (10/18: I have updated the directions to make this a bit clearer.)
