After two fairly nice melting days our thermometer reads –4!! If I can help it I don’t leave the house when its this cold, my old bones rebel! This weather is encouraging me to try a new soup recipe today. If it’s a good one I will share it with you next week! In the meantime, I will share a salad recipe today. Not sure where I found this one. Its fast and easy and I like it. Be warned Pa Lloyd doesn’t, so maybe it’s not one men would get excited about.
Hearts of Palm Salad
1 can (14 oz.) hearts of palm, drained and chopped, I slice them
6 stalks of celery, sliced
2 jars (6 1/2 oz.) marinated artichoke hearts, drained cut in half or fourths
Toss together and add the following dressing:
Red wine vinaigrette Dressing
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tsp. dill weed
6 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper and coarse ground pepper. Brown meat and onions; drain, stir in cheese spread, corn and beans. Cover. Cook over low heat. Stir occasionally until cheese is melted. Fry tortillas in 1/2 inch of hot oil until crisp and golden. Turning once, drain on paper towels. Top tortillas with meat mixture, lettuce, tomatoes and olives. Serve with dressing. Serves four. The cucumber ranch dressing really adds to the dish.
Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
