A nice fruit salad with whipping cream, that compliments any holiday meal. Needs to be made the day before, which leaves more time to attend to the rest of the meal. It was a traditional dish my Grandparents and Parents would serve with a roasted turkey, however, I make it more frequently as leftovers make a nice dish for work or school.
My neighbor served this at a baby shower and everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. This was addictive and had a unique, fresh taste. Don't leave out the bacon at the end..it is an essential ingredient, as is the chopped cilantro and lime juice.
For many years, we have been blessed with an asparagus bed that has grown the most sweet and savory asparagus we have ever tasted. The only problem, is that we usually have it every day while it continues to grow and prosper. I use this salad on a warmish night, when all you can smell is the freshness of Spring.
I just got this in my email box, it's from my cousin in Texas. I can't use it with all the sugar but it certainly sounds like it will make you go mmmmmmmmmmmmm. I couldn't just delete it so I'm passing it along the all the great Zaar folks. It can't take any more than 10 mins to put together and cook time is chill time. I'm not sure of the weight of a standard can of m. oranges so I'm guessing. If anyone tries this I'd love to know what you think and if it's no good I'll yell at Trisha for you!
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. From a cookbook of countries along the Danube, this came from Germany. The original recipe called for a tablespoon of salt but I cut it down to a teaspoon (particularly since the sprouts are cooked in broth). Cooking time includes chilling time. I have not tried this recipe yet. Update - tried for Christmas as per Elmotoo's comment. Very pretty with tomatoes, and I thought there was too much vinegar in the dressing so I suggest reducing to 1/4 cup as per current ingredients list.
If you are not an anchovy lover then this is not for you, this recipe requires a whole can of anchovies! The dressing is best if prepared hours or up to a day in advance, you will have enough dressing to make about three salads, but the dressing will keep well if covered tightly in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Also see my recipe#116849 To make this salad into a main meal add in some cooked chicken strips or cooked ham strips.
