This is a slightly modified version of a Trader Joes prepackaged salad. This serves about one. This would also be great with a little low-fat mozzarella or Parmesan; or a little diced cooked chicken breast to make a meal salad.Submitted by SERPENTINE
I made this recipe many times and always make it for my valentines day dinner because it's made with hearts - so I nick-named it 'Love Salad'. :) And my man falls in love with me everythime I make this.
Make sure you rinse all the ingredients and you will knock off over half the sodium content (nutritional values shown with ingredients not rinsed).
I've been making this with avocados since it was suggested by another member. Even better!
If you serve in martini glasses (as shown), you'll get 6 small servings.Submitted by FRENCHPRINCESSE
My mom loves baklava, and this is her recipe - hazelnuts and almonds make a killer combination in the flaky, sticky pastry (my favourite too, since I hate walnuts and pistachios!). I believe she got it from one of her schoolmate's parents when she lived near the Greek area of Toronto. You need a half sheet pan for this, which makes a lot - about 54 3" squares! You can freeze it after the syrup drench, though.Submitted by JO_JO_BA
My family absolutely loves this dip. It tastes just like a BLT!
Wine & Cheese Tasting Party
Let's plan a very easy, fun and casual Wine& Cheese Tasting Party!
This is a well rounded plan containing basic information about wines and cheeses, entertaining and building friendships.
Using some great advice from several food and wine experts, I have developed a fun and easy Wine & Cheese Tasting Party plan.
My purpose in writing these party plans is to share my experiences with you and to use expert advice to encourage and motivate you to live, love and enjoy life to it's fullest.
And my hope for you is that you will feel comfortable and knowledgeable enough of wine and cheeses to invite 6-10 friends over for an evening of wine, cheese, conversation and fun.

"Tastings" are fun. Folks sample selections of wine and cheese, write down what they experienced on an index card during the tasting and share their feelings about it.
In a round table discussion, we all compare our answers to questions like, "Was the wine sweet or dry?" "Did the cheese taste smooth, nutty or peppery?" etc...
Our first expert, Marguerite Thomas, the Editor of winereviewonline.com, reminds us that, "Above all, a tasting should be fun."
"There are no right or wrong answers!"
It's all about fun!!
So, with that good advice in mind, let's plan our party. (cont...)Submitted by VEHAMILTON1
