Mediterranean inspiration

Eggplant sounds exotic in French: aubergine (oh’-ber-zheen). On the other hand one Aubergine with Pomegranatesmust travel must farther east for the inspiration for this dish. Think of roasted Baba Ghannouj with za’atar and pomegranate jewels. A creamy buttermilk and yogurt sauce with the blush of tzatziki, is spooned over and soaks into the crevices of the roasted eggplant. Each bite has a few pomegranate seeds that pop open to release their bright red juice. Eggplant never had it so good.

No more preservatives in salads

Bottled salad dressing used to line the door of my fridge. Bleu cheese, of course, plus Ranch, Italian, Sesame, Thousand Island, Catalina and the like. Now I’m hard pressed to find a bottle of any salad dressing in my fridge. I make my own fresh dressing for the salad I’m serving. How can you prepare fresh salad greens with juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, pungent red onions and then pour on preservative laden goop.

This is my favorite everyday dressing. It’s easy! I always keep the ingredients in my kitchen. It takes 2 minutes or less to whip together. My favorite tool for this dressing is a microplane grater. It evenly minces garlic in half the

Olive Oiltime it takes with a knife and cutting board.

I love to make it in the bottom of a salad serving bowl then add the salad ingredients right on top. Saves me an extra bowl to wash. Just before dinner, toss it together and serve. It has a bright fresh flavor.

Recipe: Garlic Vinaigrette

Prep Time: 2 Minutes | Cook Time: 0 Minutes | Yield: 1/2 Cup | Level: Easy

Olive Oil, Mustard, Garlic

  • 1 small clove garlic, finely grated
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp white vinegar
  • dash kosher salt
  • dash freshly ground pepper
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • salad greens and vegetables

Special Equipment – large salad bowl


1 In the bottom of a large salad bowl whisk garlic, mustard, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper.

Pouring Olive Oil2 Slowly drizzle olive oil, whisking to emulsify.

3 Add salad greens and vegetables to the bowl, toss.
Salad Greens with Vinaigrette
Using a homemade dressing tossed right into the green salad de-clutters the dinner table. It is absent bottles of dressing littering the presentation.

Switch up the ingredients for little changes like using different vinegars or fresh lemon juice. Different mustards change the flavor. See the Dish Designer below for suggestions.

A rule of thumb is to start with 1 part vinegar to 2 parts oil.

Serve this dressing on a tossed green salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, carrots, bell peppers, etc.

This dressing also works great to flavor or sauce grains such as quinoa, brown rice, and pearl barley. Mix in 1-2 tablespoons of vinaigrette per 1 cup cooked grain while still hot to help absorb the flavor. Try Mediterranean Quinoa Salad.

Dish Designer

  • Exchange minced garlic for finely chopped scallions or shallots.
  • Exchange Dijon for coarse ground, spicy brown or ball park mustard.
  • Exchange 1/2 tablespoon honey for 1 teaspoon agave.
  • Exchange white vinegar for rice, red wine, champagne or white balsamic vinegar. Also try lemon juice.

Miracle Whip, curry powder, lemon and pineapple juices, chutney and pepper.

2 Add chicken, celery, water chestnuts, apricots, cranberries, almonds and crushed pineapple. Mix with sauce until thoroughly combined.

3 Serve in choux puffs or on rolls.

Choux Puffs
4 Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

5 In a small sauce pan, heat the water and butter until boiling.
6 Take off the heat and stir in the flour.
7 Using a hand mixer add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition until completely blended.
8 Using a spoon, scoop out the batter on a parchment-lined baking sheet with room around them to puff during baking. Or fill the batter into a plastic zipper bag and cut one corner.
9 Pipe the batter into small mounds. Smooth the top with a wet finger to avoid points getting over brown. Brush with egg wash.
10 Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes then turn the oven down to 350 and continue baking for 10-12 more minutes. Once done, pull out of the oven. Use a small paring knife to poke a hole for the steam to release. Cool.

11 Cut the top off the puffs and fill with chicken curry. Replace the lid and arrange on a serving platter.

12 Garnish with parsley and colorful vegetables such as multi-colored peppers, carrots or cherry tomatoes.

To roast chicken breast meat place 1-2 chicken breasts, depending on size, on a baking sheet. Brush or rub a little olive oil on the skin side then sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a 350 degree oven, bake for 35-40 minutes until just done and juices run clear. Place on the counter until cool enough to handle. Remove skin and bones.

To use a purchased rotisserie chicken, remove the breast meat and discard the skin and bones then dice.

Curry powder blends vary ranging from hot to spicy or fragrant to slightly sweet. This recipe is made with Asian curry powder which has a bit of heat. Use any type of curry but the amount may need to be adjusted depending on the flavor and heat. Start with a little curry, taste and add according to desired strength and heat.

Substitute a plastic bag by filling the bag with batter and snipping off one corner. Press the batter to create even mounds.

To make a main dish salad, add 1 cup red or green grapes cut in halves and 2 cups shredded cabbage. Serve on a lettuce leaf.

;) Eggs – To measure the eggs, use a liquid measuring cup. Crack 5 eggs into the cup then reduce to exactly one cup by spooning out a little egg white.

To use the Choux Puffs recipe for a dessert, add 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Choux is pronounced ‘shoo’.

Dish Designer

  • Exchange Miracle Whip for mayonnaise.
  • Exchange Major Grey’s Chutney for another brand available.
  • Exchange dried cranberries for dried cherries or golden raisins.
  • Exchange crushed pineapple for pineapple chunks that have been chopped.
  • Exchange roasted chicken for the breast meat from rotisserie chicken.

Luscious Lemon Curd

Sweet and tart, creamy smooth lemon curd made without a double boiler.

Living on the edge lemon

Lemon CurdI use the ‘living on the edge’ approach to making Lemon Curd. Leaving the double boiler in the cupboard, I cook it directly on the heat. Babying the fancy custard on medium low, it takes the better part of a half hour. The cubes of butter melt into oblivion while I enjoy the lemon fragrance. Then the lemon juice and sugar mixture slowly begins to thicken into a creamy luscious sauce. It’s at the same time sweet and tart. You’ll be tempted to grab a spoon and eat directly from the jar. If you can hold out, here’s a list of some ways to enjoy it.

  • Dip Strawberries
  • Stir into plain yogurt
  • Spoon onto cheesecake
  • Top ice cream or sherbet
  • Spread in between cake layers
  • Squirt into the center of cupcakes
  • Fill tarts and thumbprint cookies
  • Smear on scones, muffins and toast
  • Swirl into oatmeal or Cream of Wheat
  • Scoop into crepes topped with fresh berries
  • Fold into whipped cream for lemon mousse
  • Fold into meringue for light dessert topping
  • Layer in parfaits and trifle with cake cubes, fruit and nuts
  • Dollop on gingerbread, pound cake or shortbread with berries

Lemon CurdDefinitely a sauce to keep on hand in your fridge 24/7 but you’ll keep running out. It’s made of simple ingredients you have on hand regularly. How do you use Lemon Curd? Please leave a comment. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.
