You will never purchase store bought croutons again after making these! make a double batch and store in the fridge or freeze them, use in salads or soups, for easier slicing make certain to use stale bread, or place your bread in the fridge overnight, for extreme garlic flavor use fresh finely minced garlic and increase to 2 tablespoons, to infuse the flavor into the butter allow the melted butter/garlic mixture to sit for 30 minutes or more at room temperature before brushing on the bread
I developed this dressing years ago, and I can honestly say that you won't be able to keep your spoon out of the fridge for a taste, it is *that* good! --- although I do think the dressing is better with the anchovy it can certainly be made without them. In a pinch I have even substituted buttermilk for the half and half cream, just use about the same amount --- this dressing gets stronger with refrigeration time so a small amount of fresh garlic goes a long way! ---- usually one recipe without doubling is perfect for one large romaine lettuce, if you are serving a large crowd of people you might want to double -- salad dressing will not work for this use *only* mayonnaise, I find Hellman's brand mayonnaise works the best and for the perfect companion to this salad see my recipe#125034-------------LOWER-FAT OPTION use reduced fat mayonnaise and fat-free half and half or low-fat milk --- also see my recipe#66596
A Lebanese friend showed me how to make this back in 1996. It's my mother-in-laws favourite salad and I normally make it on request specially for her. I prefer flat leaf fresh parsley (also known as Italian Parsley) as it's better texture but curly leaf is alright. I normally buy the parsley and spring onions from the supper market prepacked bunches so if your measurements are slightly more or less it's alright, it doesn't have to be exact. The bourghul also soaks a lot of the moisture and I like Tabbouli to be moist not dried that's why there is a lot of lemons and olive oil. Like everything we cook it's all about the palate and who we are cooking for so if you choose to put less oil and lemons then it's ok. Salt and black pepper to taste, so feel free to add less but not to much. The secret to good Tabbouli is that everything should be finely chopped. Enjoy
Originally an RSC entry, this easy-to-fix chicken salad is full of flavor, color & texture & is ideal as a luncheon entree or sandwich filling for snacks or to-go occasions (Time was allowed for ingredient prep, but does not include time for the salad to chill under refrigeration). *Enjoy*
Love the combination of flavors and textures in this savoury salad. Delicious also as a sandwich (leaving out the grapes). Try it cold or a yummy hot variation: on one slice of sweet, whole-grain bread, spread 1/2 cup of chicken salad and put under broiler until heated, but not bubbly; top with 3 slices of bacon and 1 slice of provolone cheese. Return to broiler until cheese is melted. Yum!
Have you ever posted a recipe and just love reading the reviews for it? This is my signature potato salad. Whenever there is a pot luck function at work, I am TOLD that I have to bring the potato salad. No one else is allowed to and I am never given a choice. Thank you everyone who ever tried this potato salad and for leaving such glowing reviews for it. You all have made me look so good. I personally can not stand eggs or raw onions, so I leave them out but I know most people don't think a potato salad is complete without them. Thanks again for so many wonderful reviews. (psssst....check out my recipe #123107 as well. It shares the dressing with this recipe but tastes much much different because of the different ingredients) Please see Recipe #242966 for bacon bit tips.
I can never get enough! Maxine and Linda inspired me to write this recipe. Although it is not exactly how they make it, it is close. They prefer Miracle Whip, and don't add the onions. I used this to stuff the small puff pastries (Recipe #186307) to make hors d'oeuvres. I dice and chop finely for the hors d'oeuvres, and coarsely for sandwiches or salad.
