Well, sorta. Took a recipe and embellished it. The lamb meat can be omitted if you wish. Inspired by a recipe in Betty Crocker's Meatless Main Dishes. If you want to spice it up further, garnish with fresh minced hot peppers! A good way to use up leftover refried beans!
From a local source. I tested this recipe by substituting a variety of colors of cauliflower (purple, white, golden) for the broccoli. Other cruciferous vegetables such as broccolini, broccoflower, brussels sprouts, romanesco, etc. will work, too. Easy!
I found this recipe last summer in one of my brother's cookbooks but I forget to write down which one. I will try to source it ASAP. The walnuts and dried fruit are my addition to the recipe. The dough was prepped in an ABM, too. I used a variety of imported olives from various sources including Greece, Spain, France, Morocco, Peru, etc. A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on the still hot bread was so delicious!
Courtesy of my wonderful niece The Next Jeneration. She said the inspiration for this recipe is from a local deli in her neighborhood. All amounts given for the ingredients are estimated. Although I dislike thyme, it didn't bother me at all in this recipe. Perhaps I'm warming up to it...? Delicious Mediterranean/French/Greek/Middle Eastern flavors!
From our local newspaper. Extremely important to use the freshest ingredients for this salad! Recipe amounts were not given so they have been estimated. A note about olive brine: I use the liquid that the olives are soaked in either the package or the fresh ones from the "olive bar" at the natural food store. However I have tried a dirty martini olive juice from this source: www.garliclady.com based in Vancouver, Washington.
From apartmenttherapy.com. Surprise...no mint this time around! Original recipe called for braising the green beans for a whopping forty five minutes. Use the best and freshest ingredients available. Several changes in this recipe were made.
Fresh orange mint replaced standard variety of garden mint for a little different twist to the salad. *Fresh herbs only*, please! I don't know any reason why you couldn't substitute other seasonal berries in this salad: raspberries, blackberries, etc. From calgiant.com.
From Mediterranean Dishes. I tinkered with this recipe a little because Evelyn wasn't there to stop me. You'll find this appetizer on most any Greek mezethes. I want be reincarnated a potato in the next round.
