This is my attempt at duplicating a salad I had recently at a local restaurant. I was sitting there eating the salad and writing down all the things I could identify in it and here is the end result. I used Martha Stewarts' Dijon Vinaigrette as the dressing and it tasted just like the salad at the restaurant. A great salad to serve with grilled meat or fish.
Recipe is from Cooking Light magazine. There are several recipes for this already posted but I really liked the ingredients in this one. Serve alongside roasted or steamed green beans with slivered almonds.
We had this at a dinner party a couple weeks ago and everyone loved it. I really don't like using the ramen noodle seasoning packet but the flavor of this salad was incredible. It does make a lot of salad so I guess you really don't end up eating enough seasoning to worry about.
Recipe posted in response to a request. This is a very rich cake that is sure to impress your guests. Prep time includes cooling time. A serving is really a very thin slice unless your guests are really hungry (and not worrying about their weight) Recipe given to me by Melissa, a very nice young lady who volunteers at the center where I work.
This is from my mother-in-law. She got the recipe from a friend and we have it quite often. It is great served over rice with a nice green vegetable. When I serve it people always ask for seconds (and some for third helpings!).
This is a very simple yet elegant dessert that I serve often. You can top with a dollop of whipped cream if you like. It can be made ahead and heated in the oven while you are enjoying your main course. Recipe from Sunset Magazine.
