There was a request for the Outback's Blue Cheese Chopped Salad on the forum today... it's been a couple of years since I had the salad myself, but I recall really enjoying it! The request set my tastebuds a'craving, so I put together this salad. We took it to a potluck today - I had two servings of it for lunch, and the husband and potluck attendees pronounced it great! :)
This has been a quest for me since eating at the III Forks in North Dallas a few years. I tried to duplicate the dressing but failed miserably, many times. I found this version on the Texas Monthly website & it comes darn close to the original.
This delicious Venetian salad is from the May 2005 issue of Bon Appétit. In Venice, it would most likely be made with local crab from the lagoon. Simplicity is the essence of this recipe: make it with only the very best quality ingredients.
A delicious, simple mayo-free cole slaw, from an classic guitarist! I like to add just under a teaspoon of finely minced or grated onion to this; but sometimes it's nice to have "as is". The amount of hot sauce can be adjusted, but I like it just like this.
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
A good friend of mine who is also an excellent cook served this elegant but very easy-to-make salad at a luncheon years ago. She shared her recipe and I've been using it with great success ever since. It is delicious and everyone who tries it loves it! It's a great brunch or luncheon entree and also is good on a buffet table. It's an easy recipe to double and if you're asked to bring a salad, it travels well and is easy to assemble. I always make extra dressing for the table.
