Xakk's Mediterranean Salad

"Xakk still loves Liz, but he is not so keen on onions, so this recipe features canned artichoke hearts instead. The salad keeps well and will make several meals for two lovers, but the recipe can be expanded to serve a crowd."

    While I like the idea of this salad, I think something else is needed. The combo of veggies is great, but the olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice just comes across as sour, with no balance. I did toss in a garlic clove, but that didn't help too much. I may at some time tinker with adding some herbs to the dressing.

    Bill, you done outdid yourself again! I work with Bill, and he brought this to our company picnic. It was wonderful, and not at all sour~ it was a wonderful balance of flavors! The lemon juice provided a wonderful light and clean taste to the finished product. One footnote, when I came online to review this, I was pleasantly surprised to see it was named after one of our supervisors!


Some of you know me as Brother William. No, I am not really a Monk, but I have grown to enjoy my simple and solo lifestyle. My love for humanity is based on fellowship rather than sensuality. I PROMISE that I will never share a recipe unless I have tasted the food. Most of the recipes are mine, but I have included a few classics, and some recipes that were written by very creative people, that are just so good that I had to share. From time to time I have found recipes with my name on them in print magazines, but they are always altered in some way by the publisher. So there is no reason why you should not add your own personal touch. If you leave this page with just one thought, I hope that it would be that Cooking is a Creative Sport. I grew up in Glenview Illinois, just north of Chicago. My Mother loved those little exotic cookbooks, that were sold as a weekly series in grocery stores in the 1950's. I was taught to eat whatever was put on my plate so I ate food from a different culture every week. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be Mediterranean. After leaving my Mother's table, I have lived and enjoyed eating in Colorado, Missouri, Montana and Nebraska, before settling in Saint Cloud, Minnesota in 1975. After a 30 year marriage with mixed reviews, I am now pleasantly single again, and plan to stay that way. Up until recently, I had occupied my evenings just talking with people and sometimes sharing recipes, while soliciting donations for Non-Profit Organizations. Yes .. that's right, for over 20 years, I was a Telemarketer. The perfect job for a Taurus. I enjoy reading cook books the same way most people read novels,and I am still improving my skills in the art of Solo Cooking. However; my true passion will always be sharing my favorite recipes with all of you.
