Holiday Shrimp Salad

I made this a couple years ago for Thanksgiving and my family has been asking for it again ever since. So I made it for this year's Thanksgiving get-together, but I lightened it up some. I could have bought fat-free or lower-fat mayo too, but it was out of my price range this week! :(

I know it sounds like a really weird combination of ingredients, but it comes out very good!Submitted by: LEAKAY59

Barley and Lentil Soup with Swiss Chard

Incredible! 5.0/5
(7 ratings)
Barley and Lentil Soup with Swiss Chard

This is a wonderfully healthy soup! It is a good healthy hearty soup that holds up well for the next day. A nice blend of rich flavors and yet so simple to make.

Suggestions for changes and additions from are: Double the tomatoes. It is also good with a spicy sausage, like turkey Andouille. Add more garlic and celery. Instead of Swiss chard, use collard greens. Add chipotle chili powder and/or a bit of liquid smoke and some cayenne to taste. It's wonderfully deep in flavor. Plus, a touch of sea salt when serving really brings out the flavors. Add a spicy Mexican tomato sauce call Chili el Pato from the Mexican food section of the grocery store for a little zing. Try sautéing the onions in some red pepper flakes for a little more depth of flavor.

Quick Fried Cauliflower

This is my variation on a recipe in Kevin Mills' cookbook "Faster! I'm Starving!" It only takes about 20 minutes total to prepare and it's super yummy. The cauliflower is tender, but still firm -- not mushy like it gets when you boil or steam it. If you want to change the spice mix, just be sure you use other warm spices.Submitted by: SELKIE1964
