I found this recipe as a comment on a blog that was describing how to ripen green bananas. Sometimes they are just TOO green so I plan on trying this soon. The poster went by "Kat"
But then I noticed she had THREE cups of oil so I looked this up online (my Spanish skills came in handy!) and adjusted it a little.
yield and time is approximate
This came out of a brand names cookbook. It is really delicious! The raisins add just a hint of sweetness that offsets the tang of the dressing. Prep time does not include refrigeration time. I always use chicken breast when making this salad, but the directions are not specific, so you could use dark meat if you prefer.
This was part of a dinner in Rachel Ray's magazine. It was served with salmon, but this would also be good with pork. It's a different way of serving zucchini and summer squash which is so abundant in the summer!
No such thing as too many chickpea salads! This was an especially good version I thought, altered a bit with my own and my BF's taste in mind. Extremely easy and no cooking involved, particularly good for lunch at the office or a weekend picnic since it's best at room temperature. If you'd like to make this for a no-cook summer dinner, it's a main meal for two (with a side of green vegetables) or a side dish for four.

Asian inspired salad that EVERYONE asks me to bring, make or share. I actually had my voice on TV and won a $320 wok for this recipe! I have updated and modified it to be healthier and easier! Hope you like it! Submitted for World Tour Asian and SW catagories as it is very popular here in TX. NOTE: We never liked the 'leftover' salad as the crunchy parts got soggy except for the almonds until I got the bright idea to add the leftover salad to a tortilla and make it into a wrap. (I amaze myself sometimes! lol)
I placed the tortilla/wrapper in a skillet and flipped after the first side was warmed. Laid some sliced sandwich meat -whatever you like- on the warmed side and let the new side warm. Remove from pan and add leftover salad- drain any dressing from it to get it a little drier. Roll up and serve- WOW! Try adding other stuff to it as well. We liked raisins, dried cranberries, shredded carrots, chopped celery etc...

This salad is perfect. AND the curried cashews make outstanding appetizers, garnishes, snacks or gifts; the honey-sesame dressing can be used on any number of salads. The contrast of colors, flavors and textures is inspired. Tom Douglas is chef and owner of 4 Seattle eateries and this salad has been on his menu.
