Almond Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
I thought this was 5 stars just as written. But I have had it many times since, and I love to change it up a bit by adding one or more of the following: baby spring lettuce mix, colby cheese, croutons, chicken pieces. I haven't made the recipe salad dressing yet, but I used the Kraft Poppyseed dressing, and I have a new love!!!!! The combo of flavors is dynamite. Thanks for this simple but awesome recipe. Tip: Mixing beforehand can make the spinach soggy from strawberry juice, which is a problem with keeping leftovers. Also, the almonds fall to the bottom, making it hard to get a balanced helping. When serving lots of people out of a huge bowl, I place the strawberries (sliced) and the almonds in separate bowls for people to add as they wish.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
As written, I give the recipe 4 stars. Based on other reviews, I rinsed the beans in cold water to clean off preservatives & decrease gas. Then I added 1/2 cup of beef broth (could use chicken) to replace liquid. I sauted onions and garlic until golden brown and added them to the pot of beans. I brought beans to a boil and then let simmer uncovered for 15 minutes to blend flavors. I added cilantro to the pot a few minutes before putting in serving dish. Got many compliments at the Mexican potluck dinner tonight, and my serving bowl was practically licked clean, lol. That's always a good sign. Next time, I will try allowing them to simmer on low for a few hours in a crockpot to mix the flavors even more. I left out the cayenne, and I will add that or chili powder next time. Adding a garnish of chopped green onions and sour cream sounds yummy, too. Thanks for this great recipe and all of the wonderful ideas from readers.
