Every time I eat at CPK, I have to have this salad! I love the tangy dressing, the fresh basil, the crispness of the ingredients. My husband got their cookbook for Christmas one year and I enjoy making it at home occasionally too!
This is a high, light-textured chocolate cake with a bit of rum flavor, nice for spring. A nice cake for a wedding shower or for Mom on Mother's Day -- if you wish, sift a bit of confectioners' sugar over the top just before serving.
This recipe adapted to help me stick to a 'good' carb eating program for weight loss. The whole family loves it! Very easy to make too! Note: You can substitute canned beef broth for the 'beef base' if you want. I also recommend the low-sodium kind. Also, once the rice is cooked through, if it looks like more water is needed, go ahead and add it to your liking.
