I love ranch dressing, but it's not available in Israel. They've never even heard about it! I found this somewhere on the Internet about 10 years ago. My veggie daughter loves this on tomatoes. I like it on potato latkes, of all things.
I started seeing this delightful little scoop of heaven on the edge of my plate at a few of the Mexican restaurants around town, so I decided make it at home. This recipe is actually the recipe they use at Chevy's, which I found published in the local paper.
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.
A refreshing and flavoursome salad which is visually appealing and complements any meat, rice or pasta dish. Adapted from a recipe in the latest issue of the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. When I posted this initially, I just listed "pears" in the ingredients, but have since located the pears specified, and I have made the salad with those pears: CORELLA PEARS. See notes below.
This is a great recipe if you like spinach and feta cheese. The times I've made it for other people, they really enjoyed this unusual rice dish. I used white rice in this recipe that was freshly made for the recipe, but I think that leftover rice would work too. I also used Kraft Parmesan cheese, but think that freshly grated Parmesan would be even better.
Small red mild radish are a favorite salad ingredient with many Germans. One of the many salad variations we usually eat. We prefer the mild nutty flavor of a medium-priced walnut oil to the fruity flavor of olive oil, the grainy texture of the country-style mustard and some tang from the vinegar, but feel free to use what you like best. I often sub the onions with 1 tablespoon chives.
This is one of the Zaar recipes that I adopted. I prepared this salad to accompany Recipe #7088 for a very elegant meal. The honey mustard dressing compliments the fruit and spinach wonderfully. I hope you'll enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!
Mom would prepare this for us often when fresh chard from Dad's garden was plentiful. When I finally wrote down the recipe, Mom couldn't give me exact measurements, as all good cooks are guilty of. I think this recipe is based on traditional Mennonite/Pennsylania Dutch fare, since my Dad was from that region. A blast from the past!
A wonderfully earthy salad that is great for a picnic or with BBQd meats, that improves with standing and that is better served at room temperature rather than chilled. I am posting this Middle Eastern-style salad for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. I found it in English chef Brian Glover's fabulous book 'The Onion Cookbook': a real culinary haven for lovers of onions, garlic, leeks, spring onions, shallots and chives.
This no fat side is so simple simple simple and very very tasty!
The Sweet Dried Cranberries plumped up in no fat chicken broth, water or even veggie broth for vegans with fresh scallions topped with toasted pine nuts for a bit of protein.
Prep and cook time is really no time at all!
A healthy, quick meal to throw together, especially useful if you don't feel like cooking. If you can find Italian Toscano kale please try it! The Toscano kale can usually be found at farmers' markets or specialty grocery stores, or if you're lucky it can be found at your local supermarket. I give two versions of this recipe for ease in cooking when you have limited ingredients on hand. Serve the kale over hot cooked brown rice or
whole grain pasta for a filling meal. Our favorite topping on kale is the splendid copy cat recipe #95888.
This comes from Michael Robert's "Parisian Homecooking" and is a typical flageolot dish--and typically served with lamb. Any bitter green--chard, sorrel, collard--can be substituted for the dandelion greens.
