An absolutely delicious salad dressing that is the house dressing at a five star restaurant that shall be left unnamed, I got this from a friend that works there. Very tangy and sweet. Like a creamy raspberry vinaigarette.
This recipe is from chef Nora Pouillon, owner of Nora's in Washington, DC, a "certified" organic restaurant and a quite wonderful place to dine. Vegetable stock may be substituted for the chicken broth.
This recipe is from Canadian Living's Get Grilling: Summer 2007. It's a wonderful sauce and marinade that's also called chimichurri rojo. To marinate 1 lb of lamb chops, boneless pork chops, steak or chicken legs you'll need 1/3 cup of sauce. Marinade the meat for 4 to 24 hours before grilling.
This came from a recipe card at the grocery store. A very quick to prepare, light and flavorful dish. Excellent served with mushroom rice (or risotto) and a steamed vegetable. Great for a fabulous weeknight meal. This recipe represents the light and healthy cooking style known in the Western U.S.
This recipe was adopted after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "A very mustardy, robust dressing for salad greens. Can also be used as a marinade for fish. Recipe adapted from Mariel Hemingway." I first prepared it at the urging of Shelly, and wasn't sorry. My original review stated, "This is a very mustardy dressing. I followed Shelly's suggestion of reducing the mustard and adding more to taste as I blended the dressing. I used a dijon dressing and black olives, as this is what I had on hand. I also cut back the recipe to yield only enough for a couple of salads. I knew that my hubby wouldn't be interested, and wanted to make only enough for me to use in a day or so. The flavors are bright and fresh and really add to simple tossed salads. I like the fact that I am gaining the nutrition of the spinach in this dressing." This has become one of my favorite dressings.
What I love about this dish is how versatile it is. It goes well with a fancy main dish or it can be served up with some grilled chicken drumsticks. it also comes from Bon Appetit magazine. I hope you enjoy it.
