This is the third and final recipe to go with the Brazilian Feijoada I made the other day. In addition to that marvelous bean stew that was just loaded with all kinds of meats, beef and pork, some smoked, I served a traditional side, fresh & bright Brazilian Style Collard Greens. What really accented those dishes was this Brazilian Vinegar Tomato Salad.
For someone who doesn’t frequent a lot of steakhouses, I seem to be building up quite a little collection of Steakhouse Recipes. (Click on the tag “Steakhouse” at the bottom of this post to see some of them.) Here’s another, a copycat version of Longhorn Steakhouse’s Longhorn Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad.
Awhile back, I put out a recipe for my new fave burger, Feta Stuffed Harissa Sliders. Those are such juicy, fun, zippy burgers; check them out if you didn’t see them when I posted them. Since I used Harissa in those burgers, a North African condiment of different peppers, I thought it would be fun to find something from Africa to go along with the burgers. So here it is, African Tomato & Onion Salad.
I make lots of Chicken salads in the summer, usually loaded up with something fun or special…but every now and then I get a craving for a good old fashioned chicken salad. A few years back I was introduced to Costco’s Chicken Salad by my sister in law. My gosh, did it ever hit the spot and it’s crazy good. But I couldn’t help but think it would be so easy to make a Copycat Costco Chicken Salad at home.
I always have my eye out for recipes that might be just a little offbeat (hey, I’m not Betty Crocker) especially ones that can be adapted to my Minnesota kitchen. And while this is a regional specialty, Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing is one of those recipes that’s right at home anywhere you might live!
