This was one of my Mom's favorite "snackies" during the day while we were all at school...I used to love it too, and it was really refreshing! I've seen similar recipes to this one, but none exactly the same...This one is the best, in my opinion. :) Posting with the Scandinavian recipes for Zaar World Tour II.
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.
This is one the most colorful and beautiful salads I have ever made. It is full of anti-oxidants, vitamins and is also low carb. You absolutely cannot substitute the sauce...it makes the salad. It is made locally near where I live so I don't know how widely distributed it is...but they have a website to check the nearest place you can find it. There website is www.dulcetcuisine.com. It is an all natural sauce with no preservatives. Preparation of this salad is made very simple if you have a Cuisineart food processor. I made mine without bean sprouts and snap peas, as I did not have them on hand and it was wonderful. The recipe says that it serves 2, but my husband and I both had two bowls for dinner and had at least 3 servings left over.
This is a recipe I've developed over the years. It's always a big hit at family BBQs. I took a batch over to a neighbor's cook out and the lady of the house took one bite and exclaimed "There's a whole lotta love in this potato salad."
Every Easter my Mom would make this potato salad. This is not exactly hers but my version. Don't wait for Easter make it for your next picnic!
Do use new potatoes if you like them firm but I myself like my potatoes soft so I find myself using russets, and if you don't want a precise cut salad with firm potatoes use russet. I find myself rough cutting the russets potatoes because they do fall apart and add to the creaminess of the dressing.
FYI-You can toss the cubed, cooked, still warm, potatoes with the vinegar or beet juice and let set till cool even up to over night. Then add remaining ingredients.
This is a REFRESHING, tangy Salad--low in fat. If you want it creamy and not so low in fat, just add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise.
Be sure to slice the cucumbers and onions very very thin!
Serve as salad or top open faced sandwiches with it!
Made this last night - very flavorful dressing. I got this recipe from Cottage Living, 6/2006, and made it with some adjustments. It originally called for 3 tablespoons sesame oil, so if you don't worry about fat intake (and are familiar with the relatively strong taste of sesame oil), go for it. Added a cup of leftover grape tomatoes. Also substituted maple syrup for the honey and I think it worked out well.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Pickled onions are served alongside meat dishes all over Mexico, but you can serve them with anything you want, like me when I make this recipe! Will last in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. The lime juice, zest and grapefruit make something called sour orange juice. I've never heard of it, can't buy it in the store and I wouldn't want to experiment with regular orange juice to make it! The beet juice is used to turn the onions red(der). Serving size is a guess. Chilling time is included in cooking time. From a special issue of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking.
Chick peas are my favorite beans. If you like them too, you might want to try this fast and easy Caribbean recipe. Altered slightly to suit my BF's preferences. Update: Original recipe called for 2 tablespoons curry powder. I reduced that to 1 tablespoon but suggest that you add 1-3 teaspoons more, according to taste. Due to a reviewer's comment I also suggest that you add hot sauce to taste. This is very flavorful and easy to make, I think you will like it. Ketchup adds a certain measure of sweetness.
Oustanding combination of vegetables, herbs and cheese; they complement each other perfectly. Would make a great vegetarian summer (or anytime) one-dish meal. I found this recipe on-line when searching for artichoke recipes (hey, you can never have too many good ones). Then I tweaked a little to improve it.
