It really is salad time

The recipe at my website for Friday is a southwestern style corn and olive salad. The original recipe asked for honey in the dressing. I have a terrible time getting honey incorported in a dressing with vinegar so I substitute white sugar. This recipe has a lot of eye appeal in the contrasting colors of the ingredients.

I couldn't see that recipe (which sounds right up my alley) but that broccoli salad sounds so good! Thanks for posting. I'll check back for the other one later.

Have you ever tried to warm up your honey just a bit before incorporating them together? In addition, you can try putting them in the blender or food processor. Honey has such a distinctive taste that substituting it might not be worth it.

I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
