Small bites (post #62904)

Recipe tried from Small Bites - I know several CTers have this book, as I was enabled right here.... Jean? Adele? Both? :-)

anyway, this is a very good salad, tasty and gorgeous

Arabian Salad with dill and crispy pita, page 88

lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, cucumber - toasted pita bread and pomegranate seeds.

Mint and dill (I omitted the dill, kept the mint) - dressing with lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar

very good, nice combination of veggies

pita bread is cut in small pieces and toasted with a little olive oil - once cool, pieces are added to the salad - not exactly like a "fattoush", because in that case the bread is stale and kept in larger pieces. But, a nice departure on that classic

Yup, I have it, any others you've tried and liked?

I tried the rolled zucchini ribbons - page 160

became more or less a staple in our home - I don t do the beautiful presentation of the book, just make the rolls and serve them.

serrano rolled asparagus - page 152 - I use prosciutto instead, and only did the aioli once. NOrmally I just do the rolls, add parmiggiano shaving on top and run quickly under the broiler.

coconut shrimp - page 14 - made it once, did not care for it.

I think I may have been one of the book pushers - and I still haven't made anything from it!

Which reminded me that when the CookBook project started, I promised myself I would cook something from one of my many books once a week. Oh well....perhaps this year's resolution.
To jumpstart it, I finally made Pam Anderson's egg rolls, which i know you like, tonight.
Really like them, though may jazz up the filling a bit next time.

You know I have had that thought, at least one recipe from one book every week. My poor project book ran out of food I wanted to eat! :/
I look at all my books and they all seem to be saying, "...pick me, pick me...). :)
