This salad is made in Finland in two ways: either with herring (rosolli) or without (punajuurisalaatti). It's my favorite beet salad, and although I've never made it including the herring I'm sure it would be tasty that way, too! Based on a recipe from "The Finnish Cookbook" by Beatrice A. Ojakangas. First prepared in our household by my husband Mike. :)
These are a deliciously healthy, filling meal, and good for both everyday eating and when your vegetarian guests come over for dinner! My non-vegetarian husband doesn't even miss the meat when I fix these. This is a *big* batch, so plan on leftovers. :) Good for picnics & potlucks, too... see note below.
This recipe is from my mother's newspaper clipping recipe collection, so I'm not quite sure when or where it actually came from... I suspect it's from the 70s. I've tweaked it here and there - it originally called for dry soybeans soaked overnight, but I love edamame and they're much more widely available now than they used to be. Prep time includes chilling.
This year my mom brought to Thanksgiving dinner a pan of what the original recipe called "brownies" but looked more like a sheet cake. After taking a taste of it, I decided I had to type up and post the recipe - it is so wonderfully moist, almost gooey, and absolutely delicious! She clipped the recipe from a magazine, not sure which one. Mom says it was really easy to make. I say you'll love it and will be handing out the recipe to friends. :)
A delicious recipe from "The Brimming Basket," the newsletter of the Pike Place Market Basket CSA, featuring Washington apples. It can be prepared up to four hours in advance. Prep time includes chilling for the vinaigrette.
After preparing AngelaTN's roasted asparagus for dinner recently, I just couldn’t get enough of them! I wanted to make them again, but the event I was going to was a non-heating kind of thing, so I decided I'd put together an adapted version that would work well chilled or room temperature, as an appetizer. Here's what I came up with, and it's delicious! I made them as part of an anti pasto tray. Prep time does not include chilling.
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! :)
