Posting for ZWT#6. From CookingLight contributor Suzanne Rumsey of Fort Wayne, Indiana who won $5000 for this recipe! What would YOU do if you won that money? :) A make ahead and time does not include chilling time. It says 8 servings but think they might be pretty small portions.
Quick, easy and delicious meal. Minimum fuss cooking at it's best. I found this recipe in the February 09 edition of "Recipes+". I didn't have chives on hand so used 1/2 red onion finely chopped instead. I also used loin chops and think the lamb leg steaks would work well too. I served it with a small helping of couscous.
This is a light and crispy salad great for a summer picnic or when it's too hot out to cook. I've had this recipe for years and have no idea where it originally came from. It's extremely easy to prepare and is always a hit.
Food & Wine 2008 Magazine, June 2008 edition. A fast & healthy classic combination. Sue Zemmanick, one of the best new chefs for 2008, mixes fresh crab, avocado and tomato with a vibrant, spicy dressing spiked with jalapeno peppers.
A nice quick summer lunch, or can be served as an elegant appetizer salad. If you can find tuna in olive oil, it's well worth it in this recipe, but when draining the tuna, save the olive oil for the dressing. Cook time is actually chill time.
This is a spicy Thai salad made with ground beef. The salad itself isn't something piled up on lettuce, but rather scooped up with lettuce leaves. Or, if you prefer, you could take spoonfuls of the meat with garnishes and wrap them in a softer lettuce, such as Boston, or red leaf. As always, adjust the spiciness to your own taste.
I actually despise canned tuna. However, it is so economical that I am constantly searching for recipes that make it tolerable to me. I went back for 3 helpings of this one! It came from Betty Crocker's New Cookbook. Cook time is actually the recommended chill time. Don't forget to plan on time to cook the pasta.
This is a delicious summer salad. I use ready-made Sweet Chilli Sauce, and to give the salad interest, I use a variety of different lettuce leaves, some chopped spring onions (shallots), parsley, watercress, cherry tomatoes halved, and sometimes some chervil.
Found this recipe online, from a 1999 BH&G magazine. Sounds like it has potential, so I'm posting it here to keep track of it. I may post some changes once I've actually made it. I'm guessing the smoked salmon in the recipe refers to hot-smoked salmon like alder-smoked salmon, not cold-smoked like lox or nova.
