This is a tangy vinaigrette--wonderful on mixed greens, tomato, onion and cucumber salads. It's also good if used sparingly over steamed veggies or stir-frys. Sometimes I use traditional balsamic vinegar. However, this will produce a slightly sweeter vinaigrette.
Balsamic Vinegar Potato Salad
If you enjoy marinated potato salads, this recipe is for you. Definitely a delicious way to enjoy potato salad. I used roasted peppers from a jar. Just as good as fresh.
Roasted Mushroom Salad
Don't expect conventional nutrients from mushrooms, but they have hidden anti-cancer activity and may stimulate immune function, research finds. Add red pepper's vitamin C, olive oil's good fat, and the antioxidants in basil and garlic for a very healthful salad.
Chicken Salad with Couscous
I experimented with some ingredients I had in my cupboard and was pleasantly surprised with these results. Also, can be served cold, so it's a great make-ahead lunch food!
Hot Spinach Salad
Fresh spinach and bleu cheese with warm homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Use a Danish bleu, if you can.
