This recipe came from Chef Craig Stoll, chef and owner of the Delfina restaurant in San Fransisco, California. I did scale down the recipe to feed 12. You can easily cut this recipe in half. Great for a crowd for the holidays!
This is best when made several days before eaten. Put on top of salad greens, or on mixed with hot rice. You may use canned chick peas for this. I got this from an old notebook which I had written recipes in a long time ago. I suspect it comes from Moosewood cookbook. Prep time does not include cooking of chickpeas.
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.
White beans, caramelized onions, mushrooms marinated in balsamic vinegar, sun dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts combine for a sweetly flavorful salad that can be served warm or cold. It was a hit with my toddlers too!
Be prepared for the best Greek salad on the planet! --- plan ahead the dressing needs at least 2 or more hours to blend the flavors, I sometimes add in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dressing for a more cheesy dressing, all amounts may be adjusted to taste ---- to marinade the salad allow to sit at room temperature before serving, see bottom of instructions --- you will find this and many more of my recipes posted here http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/04/13/kittens-famous-greek-salad/ ---also see my recipe #359292
