This was part of a recipe for tilapia tacos. I've tweaked it a bit and now make it as a side dish, not just as part of the taco. The last time I made it, I doubled everything and added small, thin strips of red bell pepper and about a handful of snow pea-pods, cut into thirds.
This is a combination of several recipes using ingredients that I usually have on hand. I used the kind of ham that comes in 3 ounce packages with about 8 very thin slices. (Buddig is the brand if that helps.) For cheese I used one wedge of low fat Laughing Cow swiss cheese per breast. DH loved it so I thought I'd share!
This is from a U of Hawaii website. Evidently the kamaboko available in Hawaii is much larger that the crab sticks that are available in the US midwest, but I hope they will be an acceptable substitute. Since there is such a strong Japanese influence on the culture of Hawaii, I'm including this for ZWT 7.
This was the featured recipe on Rachael Ray today. I've been experimenting with cast iron cooking, so this adapted perfectly. (Rachael didn't use cast iron.) Plus, I had most of the ingredients already! Hubby called this "a keeper"!
I adapted this from another recipe for grilled asparagus. The grill was out of gas, so I decided to try using the oven. I modified the seasonings to reflect my desire to cut the fat content. My company, family and I all loved the results. Enjoy!
My family thinks that Emily's Lebanese Deli in Minneapolis has the best tabouli. I found this recipe on a blog by MoiFrey (http://diningchezmoi.blogspot.com/2006/08/my-favorite-tabouli-tabouli-is.html) She worked on it for years and claimed to be like Emily's - it's a winner! I use my own method of draining and fluffing the bulgar and the results seem to be just fine. (See blog for original method.)
This is a corruption of another salad that has 4 varieties of beans in it. When I don't want to make enough for a crowd, I use this version. It's pretty healthy and is full of good carbs (especially if you skip the corn).
