So yesterday, I posted Ina Garten’s Guacamole, and while that’s perfect for just about any party or gathering, it’s really perfect with Ina Garten’s Salmon & Guacamole Sandwiches.
I wish I could say that this was an attempt at healthier eating in 2018. It wasn’t though. I actually made this when I picked up some salmon at Aldi at a killer price right before Christmas and it was kind of a special treat.
Way back in the day when my parents threw the occasional party, this little spread would be made. I still remember the sweet little silver plated bowl Mom put this in. It was one of our dog’s trophies. Yep. There was a little engraving on the bottom!
If you’ve thought a Souffle was a fancy dish, the bastion of a master chef, think again. I was charmed by this simple recipe from my Grandmother’s 1917 cook book. Not as tall or high rising as a fancy souffle, this is a simple, country souffle and is absolutely delicious. No stress and worry free, a souffle like this is right at home at breakfast, brunch or as a simple side.
Salmon Cheesecake? Really? Reactions of those who’ve never considered a savory cheesecake tend to vary until someone tries this creamy, smoky spread. You may have to get over the name, but you’ll never get over your first taste…I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve been asked for it.
You’ll know the living is easy when you try this Tuna with Green Bean and Tomato Salad, served up with White Beans for a little extra protein and substance.This is the answer for those who think Nicoise looks good, but might be afraid their picky eaters would turn up their noses. There’s nothing unfamiliar here, but the bright, lemony dressing transforms these simple ingredients.
Sometimes I’m possessed by food jealousy – I think it might happen to a lot of people who are on a budget. They hear about a friend’s restaurant dinner, see a gorgeous meal in a magazine, or maybe they watch Tyler Florence. Darn you, Tyler! Darn you and your belly of fresh Atlantic salmon that would be so perfect for Mother’s Day!
