The employees at Pizza Kitchens rate this number one! What's not to love with the crunch of the jicama, corn chips, and lettuces; the explosions of different flavors with every bite; and the contrast of the sweet-and-spicy barbecue sauce with the cool ranch dressing...mmmm...mmmm!
This has gotten rave reviews in Atlanta, Georgia, where it is served up at the Flying Biscuits Restaraunt. A Southern recipe kicked up a notch! Adapted from $40 a Day with Racheal Ray. The original recipe called for 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne pepper, but I'm a sensitive gal, so reduced it a bit. Use what you can handle. Lol!
In Milan, toasted cheese sandwiches are a popular gourmet treat. The cheese is laid over the artisan bread and then topped with olives, roasted peppers and herbs. The sandwich is closed, pressed tightly and browned on both sides with olive oil. This easy to make recipe is perfect for anyone in a time crunch. They only take 5 - 10 minutes to make! Adapted from Mezzetta web site. Cheese is produced in New England, the West and the Mid West.
Mexican and Spanish inspired baked tomatoes, filled with corn, jalapeno and bell pepper, Monterey Jack cheese, basil, and cilantro! This recipe can be easily halved or doubled. Adapted from the New Basics Cookbook.
You can use leftover roast beef or steak in this main dish salad! Adapted from Woman's Day magazine (May, 2005) You may use the dressing posted here, or your own! I like this with balsamic dressing, but I pour the dressing posted here first, then the balsamic on top.
