Barb's Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I could not stop eating this dish, I loved it so much! This is a great base recipe because you can tailor it to your tastes and it will come out wonderful every time! I didn't have all the exact ingredients, so I made some substitutions and I also added some ingredients. I made a cole-slaw dressing instead (light mayo, milk, sugar, red wine vinegar); I only had dried, chopped onions and onion powder; the bacon I had was "maple" flavored which added a great richness and sweetness to the flavor; I added honey-roasted almond slices and plumped raisins (just soak them in super hot tap water for 3-5 mins); also, I only had the frozen broccoli and cauliflower, so I steamed them first to get them soft, then chilled the whole dish. Lastly, we were curious about how the dish would taste warm so we heated up the last couple bites and it was even better! I'm making it hot next time, I can't wait!

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
This sauce was pretty good, but it was a little thicker than I anticipated. I think it would have worked better to stir the cooked butter/flour (roux) in by the spoonful to an already warm mixture of milk and lemon juice (saw the tip on another recipe and it worked well). I think by adding the cold milk, it made the sauce chunky. I ended up adding some white cooking wine to thin it out and then had to add more lemon juice. I added some dill, but the sauce really came together after I added some garlic. I didn't actually care for it on the cod I made it for (since I thought it was lighter), but it was fantastic on the rice. Love the tanginess and spice--would like to try again.
