Kale and Cucumber Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
This was interesting (at best), and probably very healthy - but that's about the only reason I can think of for making it again. Honestly, I think my horse might like it more than I did - and I'm a kale fan! Some of the ingredients (e.g. tahini, golden raisins, smoked slivered almonds) are not cheap & are not things that I have frequent use for - so they will probably sit in the cupboard forever. I did end up adding dried cranberries towards the end of the meal, and that was an improvement. I would suggest substituting dried cranberries instead of the golden raisins. I just found it too 'kale heavy' and would be tempted to cut the kale in half & use bok choy or napa cabbage for the balance.

Chef John's Shaved Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2014
Wow...Quite elegant: DELICIOUS, and VERY easy. I didn't have pastrami so I cooked sliced proscutto instead and it was awesome. The contrast of the crispy fried meat with the fresh raw vegetable is a real taste treat. I added some shaved Parm & onion powder, and served with a nice slice of melon. What an easy way to impress guests. Next time I think I will add maybe 1.5 - 2 tablespoons of finely chopped onion to the meat the last minute of cooking (just to wilt), but that is a personal preference. Can't wait to make it again (I honestly ate the entire 4 servings myself as a lunch), but be sure to use fresh asparagus. Both Costco & Sam's Club package their fresh asparagus really well & it is always so much better than the supermarkets that just put it out unwrapped, with a rubber band around it.

Awesome Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Oye. Very meh. Had it a 20 times from deli's and this version is more money & more work. Sorry, not worth making again. Very bland & not much flavor. Just expensive to make.
