Here's a quick, easy, and delicious, piping hot crab dip, perfect for a winter gathering. The base is cream cheese, mayo and crab. We've dressed ours up with green onions, parsley, horseradish, slivered almonds and Tabasco. The proportions are guidelines, really this is to taste.
Again....another "Quick Cooking" recipe. I live and breathe by this magazine...lol. This is a very impressive salad dressing. The last time I had company, I put all of the ingredients in the blender and waited until the company came to blend everything together. I got a lot of "ooohs and ahhs" and they loved the taste.
Another great salad idea from my friend, Alla. This is the perfect recipe when you have about 5 seconds to make up a salad and no dressing on hand. ALL MEASUREMENTS HERE ARE APPROXIMATE. Adjust to your taste. This dressing goes on a huge array of green salads; experiment freely with this. It is also a good way to use up that leftover pickle juice which some of us feel guilty just tossing down the sink. (My husband will drink the stuff straight, but the mere thought of that, well...)
My 13-going-on-35 year old son tasted this at a friend's house and actually ASKED me to make salad!! Can you imagine?? Me either. I immediately called the friend's mom and got this recipe. Hope it gets your teens to eat salad too.
Adapted from Martin Yan's Chinese Cooking for Dummies. This is my favorite stir-fry sauce. It makes enough for two meals. Having extra on hand makes for a quick meal. My son will actually eat vegetables he can dip in the sauce! WARNING about the amount of soy sauce. When I used Kikkoman soy sauce, I found this sauce far too salty. I now use Angostura, which is much lower in salt. When adding soy sauce, start with less than half the amount and slowly add more to taste. Using vegetable broth makes this vegetarian. Yield: 1 3/4 cups (couldn't get that amount entered)
This is a variation of a recipe I got from a book that came with my BBQ. I used strip loin steaks and it was fantastic. You don't need any steak sauce to go with it. The taste from the marinade is delicious!
