Sunday night dinner at Gram ‘s house [me] ~ My daughter and grand daughters and I have been carrying on the tradition of Sunday night dinner, mostly at Gram’s house, when all the girls are in town at the same time! We switch it up a bit because we all love food from different countries so we have a theme potluck sometimes….other times only Gram cooks! This Sunday we each brought our favorite Asian dish. Everybody agreed so it was fun and delicious! I am sure you will love this recipe, Bon Appetit
Rainbow Salad Mix
1 tbsp of each sunflower pumpkin and sesame seeds toasted for 10 minutes.
1/2 c mixed bean sprouts
1/2 c of each shredded green and red cabbage
1/2 -1 c mixed herbs, dill, fennel, cilantro, parsley, thyme, mint
1/2 each of a zucchini and a red yellow and orange pepper julienned
1 carrot grated
1 bunch miner’s lettuce, red or green leaf lettuce or water cress or your choice
3-4 radishes if available
1/2 c pomegranate
I also sliced a red onion and tossed into this mix.
The dressing is really yummy to go with it, and I have used it on many different salads. I have omitted the sesame oil, at times, to get a different flavor which is equally good.
1/4 c olive oil
2 tbsp sesame oil
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp maple syrup or honey or agave
2-3 tbsp stone ground mustard
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp ginger or 1/2 inch fresh ginger….all ingredients to taste!
Sprinkle seeds and pomegranates over top after salad is tossed
PS. This particular salad is really yummy as is, but every now and then I like to change the dressing, so lately I have been trying it with an Asian dressing using sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, a little seasoned rice vinegar, and scallions, all to taste. ..mm mm good */~
