This is good!!! I tasted it at a party and was so surprised to learn that the base of the cookie was a saltine cracker. I haven't made this myself, but plan to do so in the near future. Just thought I would submit it because it is so different.
This is a complimentary dish served by a local upscale restaurant. They serve it before you receive your salad along with a dish of fresh vegtable sticks and olives. I can make a meal on just on the veggies and this bean salad. (Prep time does not include the overnight chilling).
This is very similar to a salad served at a neighborhood restaurant. I love the combination of the cheese, bacon and honey salad dressing. Prep time includes the overnight refrigeration of the salad dressing.
This method makes the BEST roasted prime rib. It never fails to produce a tender/juicy prime rib for me. Don't worry, the salt mixture will not affect the taste. It's purpose is to seal in all the flavor and juices.
This is a great make-ahead dip and a welcome change from the basic cheese and sour cream type dips that show up a every gathering. The nice thing is the longer it marinates, the better it gets. Frees up your time for other dishes. It's also a very "forgiving" recipe...get creative and add or delete vegetables to suit your taste. I particularly like to serve this with Fritos but again, choose the chip of your choice. :-)
