About this Cook
Recipes are made to riff on! As one of my favorite bloggers says: No rules in the bedroom, or kitchen! My mom did a local TV cooking show back in the 60's in Indianapolis. I've been helping her cook since I can remember! Even stole her new Joy of Cooking book when I went off to college. I still have that book, and she still bugs me about it!

Smoked Salmon & Watercress Salad With Red Onion-Caper Vinaigrette
I had a lot of watercress and found this. I mixed the watercress 50/50 with spring mix. I'm watching calories so I also cut the olive oil back to a few tablespoons and added an equal amount of water. I read the comments about adding something sweet so used Honey Dijon mustard. But the lemon/vinegar goes very well with the peppery bite of the watercress. Have most of a smoked filet flaked in a bag and with the dressing pre made this will be a super quick salad to whip up the next few days. I smoke salmon pretty frequently and this will be a regular rotation for the cold leftovers. Thanks.

Fresh Broccoli Salad
Love eating my broccoli like this. I tend to use as little mayo as possible and cut the sugar to 1/4 cup. I usually substitute sliced cashews for the almonds use cider vinegar and add 1/2 cup sunflower seeds. If you want a vegetarian version substitute soy bacon bits ... or just skip the bacon totally. It is still really good that way.

Hot Italian Giardiniera
Excellent. Searched for a recipe to use on my home-made Italian Beef sangwiches! Loved it -just making my 2nd batch. I did add a teaspoon of celery seed to the dressing spices. Very versatile recipe to add in whatever vegis you have available, some zuchinni and summer squash worked well. Thank you for sharing!
