Caprese is a simple salad made from fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, it's usually seasoned with olive oil and salt.
My sister and I were recently doing some cross border shopping in the USA when we stopped at T.G.I. FRiDAYS for dinner. I had the Jack Daniel's Black Angus Shrimp & Sirloin - OH MY GOODNESS!!! The steak was perfect, the Jack Daniel's Sauce sumblime but I was also impressed by the tomato salad. The salad was slightly chilled, sweet, crunchy and delicious with bits of cheese..
I had to recreate it and I believe this fits the bill.
It's the season and they are out in abundance, the DANDELION!
I have to admit that I'm a hypocrite. I love fields of these little yellow beauties, I admire sheets of yellow along the roadside, I think they are pretty... BUT...and it's a big BUT...I don't like them on my lawn!
Do you ever have food cravings? I mean non-hormonal, non-pregnancy cravings? I have been craving salads for the past month, that's good, right? But, I've also been craving chicken wings - ugh! Bad, right?
I've been wanting something a little lighter lately and I came across a Chopped Salad on Pinterest. I added my own spin ate 3 platefuls and still wanted more.
This is my famous Broccoli Salad, its crunchy, slightly sweet, fresh & delicious. I've seen versions with bacon or cheese, mine is a much simplier version with a clean taste. (wow, don't I sound all gourmet)
