    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    This is a nice cool summer salad that I discovered about 20 years ago by one of my favorite chefs, Pierre Franey. This is meant as a main dish, but also makes a nice first course if served in smaller quantities.

      We loved this! So different than anything I have made before. The cumin really sets it apart. I didn't have whole peppercorns to put in the wine boil so I just ground some fresh pepper into it and it was great (I have one of those cheap pepper grinders from the grocery store that isn't refillable and that you can't get open :o . I used the bibb lettuce as the base for the salad and we wrapped everything up in them like lettuce wraps. Delicious! Thanks again.
