I've been saving this for a rainy day. I had this at a friends house, begged for the recipe and got it. I have not made it myself yet. Serve with Classic Caesar Salad and warm Garlic Bread Sticks.
UPDATE-I cleared up the instructions-give this one a try, it's wonderful!
A light, fresh and very tasty potato salad, which is more of a meal than a side dish! I made this up when I had a few spears of fresh asparagus left, some boiled potatoes and some honey roast ham in the fridge! This recipe/idea is for two people - but it can be increased with ease, hence my listing of the ingredients in numbers, rather than in ounces or grammes! The dressing can be made ahead......and, hopefully it will be warm enough to sit outside and soak up the spring or early summer sun......c'est Parfait!
Adapted from Heidi Swanson, cookbook author. I haven't tried this yet, but it looks awfully good. Serve atop pasta, on baguettes, or over pizza or potatoes. Makes enough for 8 ounces dried pasta or 12 ounces fresh.
This recipe caught my attention as it was quite different than what I am accustomed to. This is a great way to use some fresh garden vegetables and to add variety to your diet. The recipe is from Planking Secrets by Ron Shewchuk.
Although avocados are high in fat, 3/4 of their fat calories come from monounsaturated fat, which is the type that may help protect against coronary artery disease. They also have 3x as much potassium as a banana. So enjoy with out guilt this healthy recipe from "The Mayo Clinic Williams Sonoma Cookbook."
I threw this together when I was trying to use up some fresh rosemary. The herb really infuses into the asparagus this way. The minty flavor of the rosemary shines here, and is softened a bit if you use the chicken broth instead of the water.
If you are trying to get more veggies into your diet then try this. It is loaded with broccoli, asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, and mushrooms and loaded with fresh mozzarella cheese. You can use a pre-made pizza shell of make your own. There are many great recipes for pizza crust already posted on Zaar. The cooking time assumes that a pre-made crust is being used.
