Asparagus and Smoked Salmon Salad
Excellent! 5 stars as written or with substitutions. So easy to make with what you have on hand. The last time I used mixed greens instead of red leaf lettuce, sugar snap peas instead of frozen. I also added a few Craisins and some Mandarin oranges. The dressing is perfect for this salad. The lemon juice is good, or the last time I made it I substituted the lemon juice with white balsamic vinegar and just a tad of juice from the Mandarin oranges. I used 8 ounces of salmon and made large main meal salads. Hubby was VERY happy. Thank you, MommyBennett, for sharing your recipe.

Tangy (Not Sweet) Tartar Sauce
This is the only way I will make tartar sauce. I can't stand the sweet stuff. the only thing I do differently is to add just the tiniest sprinkle of cayenne pepper for a little kick. In a pinch, when I don't have fresh onion on hand, I will rehydrate dried chopped onion in water for about 5 minutes and add that. If you are in a REAL hurry - Fish is on the table and you forgot the tartar sauce-dill pickle relish, which I always seem to have on hand, mixed with the mayo works well. Never any need to buy tartar sauce. This is so much better.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake
Have made this for years, but called it Fudge Pudding Cake. Regardless of what you call it, it must be called delicious. The only thing I do differently is add a tsp of espresso powder to the batter. It really brings out the chocolate flavor. If you can find it, dark cocoa really adds an extra special kick for those who like dark chocolate.
