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!
There is a book about "Why French Women Don't Get Fat" that says French ladies eat yogurt daily and that helps them to eat less of the fattening stuff. I am all for anything that helps me eat less- ie NOT GET FATter..... So here is a great recipe I found using fresh yogurt and fruit preserves to ward of the cravings!
The secret to this coffee is the earthy taste of chicory. A dark roast works best and if you mix the chicory in yourself you can vary the proportions to suit your tastes (20-40% chicory for most people). I recommend 25% chicory. The proportion of milk to coffee can also be varied to suit your taste. If you can't find chicory or coffee premixed with chicory in your area, both are available online at orleanscoffee.com/ and premixed is also available at cafedumonde.com/ or neworleanscoffeeworks.com/ or frenchmarketcoffee.com
Any spicy green and mild cheese can be substituted with great success. Very easy but VERY tasty. The dressing is simple so use the best and freshest greens and cheese you can find- I have even used locally produced sheep, goat and cow cheeses- just keep it similar in flavor- like a good queso fresco- thanks cg for the suggestion! The secret is the spicy green with the mild cheese. Keep those two in mind when choosing any substitution. Amazing little salad based on a Whole Foods Recipe. Posted for World Tour 2005.
One of my kids' favorite breakfasts, and so quick and easy too! I always have these ingredients on hand. They can even make these themselves! The ingredients are for one burrito, by you just multiply by how many servings you're making.
Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a "grainy" less smooth product. Chocolate is frequently purchased in "disks" although it is also available in bars and syrups. Two Mexican chocolate brands widely available in the US are Ibarra and Abuelita. Look for them in the Hispanic section of your supermarket.
The key to traditional Mexican hot chocolate is the tool designed to make it frothy - a round, notched, wooden whisk called a molinillo but you can place it in a blender to get it nice and frothy. Or use an imersion blender to get it frothy.
Your fish is begging for this wonderfully creamy and tasty tartar sauce. Perfect with my fool-proof crispy Beer Battered Cod recipe(#138647). A sure hit... you can omit the capers...although that would be a crying shame. Enjoy!
